Reindeer Jammies with Free Applique Pattern

Reindeer Pajama Pattern 

I love holiday traditions!  I grew up with so many and so did my husband.  One of his traditions was getting pajama's every year and a new Christmas ornament.  So I have taken on both of these traditions for my own family.  This year while putting up the Christmas tree, the kids will each get to open a present with the pajamas and their new Christmas ornament.  Then all of December they will get to wear their jammies.

This year I wanted them to match.  So I decided to use Peek-a-Boo Patterns Winter PJ Pattern.  (You can grab your own copy HERE.)

Now as you can see, I have a boy and a girl.  My baby girl is a redhead.  So putting red on her tends to wash her out and since it is Christmas, my color choices are a bit limited.  So I was looking for something green for her and red for my son.  I purchased the fabric from Girl Charlee.  They have some great knit fabrics and they had what I was looking for.  I wanted them not to be just plan colors, I wanted prints.  And Girl Charlee came through for me!  Check out some of their fabric HERE.

I also knew I wanted an applique on the front to tie the two kids pajamas together.  I settled on a reindeer.  I couldn't find a pattern online, so I put together my own and thought I'd share.  I did have to shrink the size of the reindeer for my daughter, but it worked out well.

Once you have printed, then you can follow THESE instructions to apply your applique and then make sure you stitch down the applique to your pajamas.

I must admit, I LOVE these pajamas.  They turned out so great and the kids love them.

How about your family?  Do you have fun traditions for the holidays?
