Cozy and Cute! The Peek-a-boo Alex and Anna PJs

It's my day on the Boys in Pajamas Blog Tour hosted by Sunni of Made for Little Gents. This blog tour was sponsored by Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. I was given a copy of the Alex and Anna Winter Pajamas for participating in this blog tour. (Also, if you scroll to the very bottom, you'll find a giveaway to enter to win credit for Peek-a-boo pattern shop).

I decided to use this blog tour as an opportunity to get Christmas Pajamas finished up early! πŸ˜‰ I made a new set of super cute and cozy pajamas for my two boys and my little nephew. Unfortunately, the weather has NOT been cooperative lately, so we have pictures of these guys wearing their Christmas pajamas sitting on my bed. Not the best backdrop, but it'll do.

It's really hard to get three little guys to do the same thing at the same time!
Aren't they adorable?

Let me tell you about this pattern:

This pattern is for knit pajamas. It includes sizes for children sizes 3 months all the way to children's size 12! It is rated for beginners. This pattern contains pattern pieces to make two piece pajamas (long sleeve tee shirt and pajama pants).

The shirt is just your basic slim-fitting knit pajama top. It has sleeve cuffs is hemmed at the waist.

The pants are slim-fitting, similar to leggings, and are finished with cuffs at the ankles and an elastic waistband.

This is a very easy pattern to sew, and is not time-consuming at all. You can have a couple of new sets complete in a few hours! The pattern includes layers and AO formatting, and is available for $7.95.

In case you were wondering what it's really like trying to photograph two boys 😜

These Christmas Pajamas

I sewed a size 12 month, a 2T, and a 5T for my boys and my nephew. The little guys probably could have fit in one size down, but growing room is never a bad thing! Plus, we cloth diaper, so I tend to err on the side of caution to ensure there is enough room for their "fluff." πŸ˜‰ They fit fine over their diapers.

I used solid fabrics for these pajamas that I purchased from Purple Seamstress! This fabric is an excellent quality 95% cotton/ 5% spandex. At only $6.50/ yard, you cannot beat the price! I think I purchased 3 yards of each color, but I definitely had a good bit left over, so 2 would have likely been sufficient for these sizes!

I decided that they needed a super cute Christmas applique to complete them. I used a gift design from Applique Market. I used my Embrilliance embroidery software to add their names. Funny thing - I thought I used the same font for all three, but after I finished, I realized I didn't! haha The design stitched out nicely.

I think these pajamas are SO CUTE! These actually make really cute baby leggings/ pants too. The littlest guys have worn theirs out a time or two as well. I may make a few more "comfy pants" for the younger two boys using the pants from this pattern. πŸ™‚

Daniel's reaction  to his new pajamas was my FAVORITE thing! We put them on him to take a picture, and he immediately ran his hands down his belly where the applique is, and he said, "Wow, I look fancy!" He is super proud of his new pajamas!

Daniel is super proud of his new pajamas!
Don't they all look "fancy"? And they're all ready for Christmas Eve! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…

Free and Easy... Sewing the Agnes by Halla!

I love trying new things when it comes to sewing. I love learning new techniques, how to do things different ways, and figuring things out. For the most part, I also enjoy trying new-to-me pattern designers.

This was my first ever pattern by Halla - the AGNES. Yep, I downloaded it a long time ago when it released, but this was my first time ever making it! I downloaded it with intentions of trying it because it was so popular. It may have been popular because it's a FREE pattern (you can get the code to download it in the Halla Facebook Group), or it may have been really popular because it's FREE and REALLY AWESOME. This blog tour gave me a chance to find out for myself!

I participated in this blog tour put together by Kate of Sewing from Scratch... the idea is that we would all sew the same pattern, but make it our own. If we love it as is, we sew it as is. If we want a cute bow (GwenπŸ˜‰), we add a cute bow, if we want to make all the adjustments to get our perfect fit (Sequoi…

This is the new Harmony Blouse

This pattern has three neckline options and two hem lengths. There are also several sleeve lengths available for this.  I sewed two of the neckline options during testing. View A has a cute woven detail that ties in the front. View B has a woven detail with little pleats, and a placket that buttons in the front. View C is made with knit fabric, but has a woven bias tape to finish the neckline. This pattern is drafted for knit fabrics, with the exception of the …
