So..the matching family pajamas....

Remember how yesterday I posted I was looking for matching pajamas for all of us? And remember how I said I had them custom made last year? Well, BOTH options are completely overpriced--I thought I would SAVE money by going the pre-made route, but no!!! I can't believe how much pajamas cost if you want them to match each other!!!

SOOOO...I'm going to take matters into my own hands, literally. I'm going to rip apart a pair of Josh's old pajama pants and use them as a pattern to make pj bottoms for him...same for me and Reagan...all out of the same fabric. (Joann's has some great Christmas flannels). I figure the pants can't be too hard to make if I'm using an existing pair as a pattern..and it's all straight stitches and no button holes!

Then, I'm going to buy us all long sleeve cotton shirts in the same color..white if I have to! I can always use RIT dye if needed! Then I'm going to applique some cute Christmassy design on the shirt.

Wah-lah! Matching Christmas pjs!!! Stay tuned. The quest will begin next week!


  1. Can't wait to see/hear all about them. :o)

  2. You and the matching pj's crack me up. Can't wait to see how it goes.

  3. Sounds like quite a project. Did you know that several companies sell matching pajamas for the entire family?
