PJ's for Spring Break

Its the first week of spring and its freezing here, so no short sleeved jammies for now. Instead I made a crowd favorite, Alex and Anna Winter PJ's by Peek-a-Boo Patterns! (affiliate link)

As usual, Amelia chose her fabric, she pleaded with me to buy this panda bear print. The fabric is 95% cotton and 5% spandex from Fabricville, its so soft and comfy.

This child is growing like a weed so I decided to make a size 6 and really glad I did. 

This pattern is really easy and fast to put together, only 90 minutes from start to finish including a number of interruptions from a little girl asking for snacks. As usual Amy's insturctions are easy to follow. The size range of this pattern is 3 months to 12 years, a fantastic range to make good use of this pattern.  

The final result is a cozy PJ to take Amelia into the warmer weather. I see more of these on my to-do list! I really do like the way they fit and she didn't want to take them off which means that she likes them too.

So this one is a winner, Amelia approved, and she even got her snacks!

  11. The style of pj's I'd most like to see is... An adult pattern for wearing at a hotel. Something that doesn't look like you are running to the ice machine in your pj's, but comfy enough for sleeping.

  12. We love our Alex and Anna PJ's too. It is getting cool here in Australia, so another set are about to be made!

  13. She is adorable, and those PJ's ROCK!!!
