My older boy got some red fox pajamas (fox fabric from Girl Charlee, here and red ribbing to match) in honor of his favorite animal. The pants are the "Sleeping Johns" pattern from Sew Liberated, while the top is a modified version of the Recess Raglan.
The top could be a bit bigger, but the pants have room to grow (and jump!)
He wasn't so excited to try them on the moment he got home from school, but claims to like them, so score!
I even used my coverstitch machine to do some stitching along the neckline for his version!
My littlest man got the same PJs (scaled down) in a woodland animal print from Joann's. It's a thick and soft fabric, and looks like it will withstand some washing without pilling.
Don't let the opening image fool you--this is what they are usually like:
Phew, that was rough...all that sewing for not myself! And now back to the regularly scheduled programming....
