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! 😉 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." 😉 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. 🙂

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! 🎄🎅

Fabulous and FREE! The Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs

I love free patterns, especially when they're by a designer that I already know and love. When Suzanne with Winter Wear Designs drafted this pattern, I was excited! I have not been very exciting with my wardrobe choices in the past - most of my shirts were just basic tees. Solid tees are still nice to have, but it's so much fun to wear something different. Lately I've been LOVING all the fun prints!

I KNEW I wanted to test this pattern, and as soon as I finished sewing it, it became my new favorite shirt. Like... I've been wearing it ALL THE TIME. I really need to make another one!



This is the new free Neck Tie Top by Winter Wear Designs. Isn't it great?

Let me tell you about it!

This top is a semi-fitted tee. You have the options of a solid front or a color blocked front. I color-blocked the front top to be the same fabric as my neckband tie.  The sleeve is a slim poet style sleeve with a cuff. You can either finish the bottom with a band or a simple hem.

Fun, Fast, and Free - Fresh Looks for Summer!

When I first saw the information about the "Boys in Summer" Blog Tour hosted by Made for Little Gents, I knew I wanted to participate! My boys are the reason I started sewing! I HAD to participate.

But, what would I sew? I contemplated what I might make for a couple of weeks, and then it hit me... it would be super fun to highlight a couple of great freebies! EVERYONE loves free stuff. Free patterns are a great way to try a new designer out before making a purchase, they're perfect for adding some variety to your pattern stash without spending money, and they're just super fun... because more patterns = more stuff you get to make. 😁
So the freebies I'm going to talk to you about today are from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop. I love Peek-a-boo patterns. I've made a few of them for my boys and have tested a few as well. I feel like the instructions are mostly geared towards beginners, so any skill level can be successful with her patterns. I've really enjoyed the…

Making an Applique

How I Make an Applique
So... I have a combination sewing/ embroidery machine. Obviously, I can use it for adding an applique to things, however, I mostly add appliques to my kids' clothes. Daniel is rapidly growing, but unfortunately my 4"x4" hoop size is not. At some point, I'd like to upgrade to a machine with a larger hoop size, but until then, the designs are looking smaller and smaller on his clothes. My solution: make my own appliques!

I've also been frustrated at times, not wanting to get everything out to convert my machine, not being able to find a design quite like I had envisioned, and obviously, not being able to stitch larger designs.

So, several weeks back, I set out to make my own applique design for the first time. Daniel had requested a dinosaur shirt for his birthday. I didn't want a tiny dinosaur in the middle of a shirt. And, I wanted a dinosaur with balloons. That's specific. I don't have software for embroidery, and it was EXTREM…
