Oh, So Snuggly

Did you know that Children at Play has a flannel line?

When I made this Racer Stripe fabric, I was thinking “pajamas” all the way. Good old “Leave it to Beaver” button up PJ’s. Aren’t they perfect? My husband say’s he’s next in line for some.

I wasn’t exactly sure when the flannels would be ready for sale, so getting a package in the mail a couple weeks ago was quite the treat!

The Flannels are in the Over the Fence colorway…so lots of orange, blue and cream.

We’ve been getting ready for school to start (so many mixed feelings!) and since Addie and Ian will both be going full day (in contrast to last year, when they were only gone from me some days and for 1/2 day, this is a big transition!) Right now, their school clothes are laid out of their first day tomorrow, I have made my VERY FIRST set of school lunches (I feel like ┬áreal mom now!) and I even had some new pajamas made for them to celebrate. These two were both for Ian, but Addie’s nightgown isn’t done yet, and she likes them just as much!

EDIT: This pattern is a ‘New Look’ Pattern (subcompany of Simplicity) #6746

But did you see? Oliver & S just came out with a great PJ pattern for their fall release in Sept.

We are ready for school to start! Although, I really do wish we had more lazy mornings!

And in case you think my children pose for me perfectly every time, here’s proof that photoshoots take all morning.

Happy Monday!

    Oh so cute! Love the flanelette, we are itching to get out of it and into cool cotton on my side of the world though :-)

  • http://www.shopbonnenouvelle.blogspot.com Hannah S

    Those are adorable!!! You made them the night before? I’ve always been too scared to do the tops, I only make the bottoms. I was thinking of you as school started….crazy, summer is over.

  • karin

    YEAH! I was literally wondering about this (if there was a flannel line) just Sunday. So, so happy!

    I was so happy to learn that there were flannels in your collection. I just ordered them and they should be in my shop in about a week. Thank you!!!

  • Kristie

    I love the pj’s and I love the quilt! Is there a pattern for it? x

  • http://apassionforapplique.blogspot.com Carrie P.

    Now those look like some comfy pjs. So cute.

  • Elizabeth

    I would love to get a pattern for the quilt! I am guesses your cool enough you just made it up. If so, would you make a pattern or a tutorial on how to. Love this line.

    • Sarah Jane

      yes! I will get a pattern for this quilt. I did “make it up” but I had Amy sew it up based off my drawing and marking. I’ll work on getting a template for that airplane soon. It is a darling quilt, and one that I think would make for some great variations.


  • Angie

    I second the quilt pattern request!

  • http://www.leighwilcoxsonphotography.com Leigh

    Oh yes, would love that quilt pattern!

    sarah this SOOOO makes me want to learn to sew – like take a class & learn how to follow a pattern. not just the turn on-the-machine-and-recklessly-stitch-it-up kind of sewing that i do. :-/ … maybe i’ll get brave & put sewing lessons on my christmas / birthday list. these PJ’s are precious. p.s. LOVE the goofy pic of the kids. :) SO CUTE.

  • Sandy

    Hi Sarah Jane,

    Just wanted to say, as has everyone else, how much I LOVE this range. I Have never sewn before, but after seeing a dress made from the On Parade design, I went out and bought a sewing machine! I’m about to start learning and have had the good fortune to pick up a few metres of your designs and just can’t wait to create something for my two gorgeous nieces and handsome nephew.

    I know that your sublime designs will make up for any shortcomings in my sewing ability. I just hope I can do them some justice.

    I’ve been browsing the net, but can’t find a definitive list of which designs are available in flannel. Could you possibly list them or point me in the direction of where I could find the info?

    Thanks so much.
