Christmas Pyjamas

I have taken so long making these, I can't even remember when we purchased the fabrics. Each girl picked out their favourites from the offcuts bin at Jo-Ann's - teddies, puppies & flowers were the choix du jour. Of course there wasn't enough fabric to make both the pyjama tops & bottoms, so I went digging through my stash for coordinating knit fabrics. I thought I mostly buy cotton fabrics, but I was pleasantly surprised to find I have a pretty good selection of knits... that maybe says more about the size of the fabric stash than my cotton/knit balance!
And how to get 3 girls to smile at the camera at the same time.... by promising that they can make silly faces in the next photo. Works every time!
