PJs for Christmas, Part 2

Last week in Sewing and Smocking Pjs for Christmas, Part 1, I spoke about the wonderful tradition of new pjs for Christmas and of course how special handmade pjs are. We discussed great patterns for everyone in the family. Today, as promised I am back with part 2 to discuss the perfect fabrics to use for Christmas pjs!

Of course the classic fabric for Christmas Pjs, at least if you live in the north, is flannel, and the darling pjs in the picture to the left are made out of beautiful and lovely Swiss Flannel. Of course, that might beyond your budget, but a lovely soft cotton flannel or brushed cotton is so warm and cuddly. Here are two lovely ones you might consider: Aqua Posies Brushed Cotton and Little Owl Flannel. Aqua Posies is also one one of the fabrics that our Pre-Pleated Baby Bunting Kit comes in.

If you live in the Southern part of the country, or the Southern Hemisphere, then the classic lawn is the perfect fabric! You could consider one of our beautiful Liberty Tana Lawns,

or one of our more modest priced lawns such as London Calling Dawn, or Sunny Cotton Lawn.

All of our Double Gauze fabrics would also make beautiful and soft pjs! This blog post gives tips on sewing and smocking with Double Gauze.

But no matter where you live, or what the weather, you just can't go wrong with pjs made from one of our wonderful knits!

For tips on sewing and smocking with knit fabrics, please see my Sewing with Knits: Just the Essentials, and Smocking with Knits Series. Christmas pjs are a wonderful tradition. I hope you will sew some this year! Speaking of traditions, the adorable children pictured above are riding the Polar Express train. Their family has a tradition of riding a train each Christmas. I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas filled with wonderful Christmas Traditions!
