Sew your own footed pajamas

I love footed pajamas with a zipper. Selena lived in them for the first three months of her life. Snaps are annoying because they always seem to get mismatched when you snap them up and socks never stayed on Selena's feet so I loved having the footsies built in.

Since we don't know if the baby is a boy or a girl I wanted to make some cute gender neutral pj's. I really like bright colors but most baby clothes are pastels. So I made the new baby two pairs of pj's. One in a luxurious organic bamboo velour, and one in a red cotton t-shirt knit. I wanted to dye the bamboo red, but most advice on the internet said it would most likely end up pink so I decided not to bother. I used Kwik Sew 2919. Click on the link to see my review of the pattern. There is something so satisfying about making teeny tiny baby things.

I also made Selena a pair out of a lightweight organic bamboo knit, but they are too big so she'll have to grow into them.

great job on the pjs - and Selena is so cute in her little jammies!

Great job indeed! Glad to see someone else made them too big as well, but it is better than too small!
