Grammies Girls...

I finished the Grammies Jammies for the girls yesterday. I did something a little different this year. Rather than sew the tops, I purchased the tops for all three of our grandchildren. I saw these soft and stylish sleep tops in the colors I needed, so I started with a finished top and added embellishments that would match the bottoms.

For Granddaughter #1 (with the dreamy hazel eyes), I purchased a long-sleeved Henley top that already had a little lace trim. I added a floral patch taken from the fabric I used to sew up the bottoms. I also have a second top that has short sleeves and I made that one "girly", too.
Granddaughter #2 (the little red-haired beauty) was easy. I added corgi appliques' to hers, cut from the same fabric I used for her bottoms. The tops are both short-sleeved, and I can see her wanting to wear hers day and night!

Grandson's jammies are nearly finished and I'll show those Saturday. I'll be sure to get pictures of all the items I've made before they get mailed out to their new homes. (I always do, don't I?)

I hope you have all your holiday shopping in order. It's getting time to enjoy the holidays, don't you think?

Very smart idea to take advantage of a ready made top. The "For Love Of A Corgi" one for Granddaughter 2, I have a feeling will be worn quite often.

Embellishing ready made is a perfect solution to reducing holiday stress. Besides, you get to START with the fun part!!
Merry Christmas, friend!

Donna, these are lovely. Your girls will adore the Corgis! I used purchased long and short sleeved tees for pj tops for my Treasures and made 2 sets of bottoms - long and short (we also live in Fl). The 2 tops and 2 bottoms gave them a lot of mix/match options. They're all teenagers now - sniff. Cotton knits are beginning to come back into the fabric stores but had disappeared for years.

I'm with carol...I want some! ; )
Where are Tag's new jammies? I know he has his own pants, but how about a shirt or a new scarf for the sweet boy? haha

Those are simply sweet! I love doing pj's with a bought top. They go a lot faster for me!
