I don't know about you but November makes me want to start getting ready for Christmas! The weather is getting colder, all the leaves are off the trees, and this full on fall makes me want the holidays!
I made these Christmas nighties (for the babes and her cousin) from my own pattern. I had bought a pattern I was going to use but the size 1 turned out for like a size 3T. huge! I even read the measures on the back first.
I did a gathered front skirt to the nightie, a high neck with a button close. I like a not to gaping neck hole on winter jammies. I did french seams throughout this dress.
A close up of the back, cause I like how tidy it turned out.
I embroidered the girls first name initials onto the jammies so we would know which nightie belongs to which girl (even though they are the same size). OK. maybe I just like adding a bit of a personalized touch.
I had some extra fabric and so I decided to also make little Christmas bears for each girl to go with the jammies! I used the pattern found here that is free if you sign up for the newsletter.
Each bear also has an initial embroidered to it on it's little tushie.
I know Christmas presents are supposed to be a surprise - but I wanted to be sure they fit... and then I wanted to see how cute they were with the matching bear. (the babes is only just about 16months so she won't remember by Christmas - right?)
She loves hugging her toys and giving kisses! too sweet! (but I'm biased)
and so my Christmas crafting has begun! How is your Christmas crafting going?
