Plenty of Stripes and Not a Ruffle in Sight

My efforts in digging through the large remnant bin of knits paid off. 4 yards at $2 a yard = $8. Not too bad for 5 sets of jammies.

How I'm going to sort them all out in the laundry is another story.

I might have to pull my Christmas picture from this pool of photos, since I doubt I'll ever get more cooperation than this. New pajamas is a great incentive to sit still for just a moment...
before the wrestling urge takes over.

Fabric: jersey from S.R. Harris.
Patterns: Night Owl Pajama Top (Ottobre 6-2009-34)
Stripey Legs PJ Pants (Ottobre 6-2009-35)

  1. Wow, that is a LOT of stripes! You are amazingly industrious (and thrifty!)

    Numbered tags (like the birthday shirts)? I was going to suggest named tags, but I assume the jammies will march their way down the line as the kids grow...

  2. Aw, so cute! And so thrifty! This reminds me of the Sound of Music when she makes the kids matching clothes out of old drapes. Adorable!

  6. Wonderful jammies. How about labels which say Size1, Size2, Size3, Size4, Size5. Then if they survive longer than the currently matching kid they can just move down one? Plus match the Size2 short and top and you are away. I love the second picture!!!!!

  7. OMG! That poor youngest child will have striped pajamas for YEARS! SHe will think that pajamas only come in one fabric. ( I would have done the same, but only had 2 kids.) hugs -

  11. Adorable! In the interest of saving time, how about just adding bits of (different) colored ribbons to each set?

  16. Priceless! How about a row of different colored stitching at centre back neck and waist - and that way they will be able to tell back from front too!
