Today we’re joining in the Pajama Party with Project Run & Play! It’s a super cute combination of fabrics, patterns, digital designs, and amazing pajama sewists! Plus everyone (EVERYONE) wins something for free. Go check it out.
Sewing pajamas for these boys was the easy part…getting them to cooperate for photos was another matter.
The pajama party participants were challenged to use patterns not originally intended for pajamas. For these boy pajamas, that meant the Easy Street Tee on top. With it’s huge size range, that meant that 4 out of 5 of my sons got new Easy Street Tee pajama tops.
And we used just about the entire range of sizes too! Baby boy is wearing a size 1, Lowell is in a size 5, David sports a size 6X and Thomas just barely fits the size 16 (with some added sleeve length!)
The fabric for these super cozy Easy Street Tee pajama tops is waffle knit camo print fabric from CaliFabrics. They sponsored the pajama fabrics for this post, so a huge thank you to them! And if you’ve ever worn waffle knit fabric, you know why we chose it for these cozy pj tops.
On bottom, the 3 younger boys are wearing the Pudding Pants pattern. This pattern is also not originally intended for pajamas, but when my boys put on knit fabrics on their lower halves, they think they’re wearing pajamas! No brainer here!
The fabric for these Pudding Pants is brown modal jersey again sponsored by CaliFabrics! (It’s currently sold out in this brown color, but available in SO many other colors!) I’ve been on a years long struggle to find fabric durable enough to outlast my boys bad habit of putting holes in the knees of their pajama pants. I’m not even sure I want to know what they’re doing in their pjs that wears out the knees, but these and these and these all got holes in the knees. So far so good on the modal fabric though!
These boys got so tickled every time the baby lifted up his arms and his belly hung out from under his Easy Street Tee pajama top! They could hardly hold still for laughing so hard…
Which makes many of these photos blurry. But adorable. Like this one where they were holding hands while pretending to sleep!
Ah, these boys! As I said in our podcast episode on Raising Boys, it’s one of my top favorite things to ever have done in life!!
