My "Salute to our Vererans" and Christmas Jammies for the entire family...




 I've given myself a full week to work on Christmas gifts for family members and I'm in love with sewing and needle work so I got busy... Christmas Jammies for my daughters family.. yes, Dad, Mom and the three boys.

At first I wanted to make both tops and bottoms but knowing how modern their family is I opted for making just the bottoms.  I chose a nice soft flannel but first the fabric had to be washed to allow for shrinkage....
I did find a 'family pattern' and it had sizes for all ages.  I cut out each and began sewing... it was fast and really easy.  Had them all cut and sewn in two days work.


 For the tops I chose simple black Tees....
I used some designs from the fabric and made little front of the shirt patches.  Sewed them on each Tee and CUTE!







Don't you just love to see the entire family wake up Christmas morning in their matching Jammies... I know my daughter will love them.
Ok... each set were wrapped in separate bundles with each name tagged and off in the mail they will go for Christmas eve!





Let me give you a sneak peek of my next project... knitting a really nice warm sweater for someone special that lives up in Alaska... she will use it I'm sure... 




 "With needles clicking away I bid you adieu and "Salute" to all our "Veterans" who gave their lives and time to serve our great Country.

What a perfect gift! That sweater is amazing. Knitting is not among my talents(ummm, I think I must have some talents--not sure I have found them, yet!)But is is obvious that you have enough for both of us.
God Bless all who serve, and their families, who serve in their own way.

These PJ's are cute. In fact, they'd make for an adorable Christmas card photo!
