Last year, I sewed up some flannel jammie pants for my kids and the cousins on the hubby's side of the family.
It was a bit of an after-thought I am a horrible procrastinator, so I was rushing at the last minute to get them all done. I think I made them all a bit long (eek.)

I am planning to do the same this year, but went with cotton instead of flannel. When I pre-washed the flannel, it pilled up quite a bit and didn't look that great (it was cheap-y flannel). Hopefully I'll get better results with the cotton...stay tuned, I'll let you know. And maybe a tutorial?
A tip: if you're making these for younger kids, buy some cord locks for the drawstrings, if they cannot tie the strings themselves.

I think I'll do elastic with the cotton pants. Thoughts or tips on that?
Had to share a funny holiday pic (it's almost that time of year, right?). This is my husband and my father-in-law, Randall. The elf and Santa shirts are from Target last year. This was not planned. We arrived at their house and this is what Randall was wearing! Like father, like son?!
