A Cowboy Christmas In July7:00 AM
I have to admit, this has been my most fun blog tour yet! When I first signed up, I had a pretty simple plan. Each year I make my kids...
When I first signed up, I had a pretty simple plan. Each year I make my kids PJ's for Christmas, so Christmas PJ's was perfect. A simple Riley Sleep Shirt and a Christmas Applique. It was a good idea honestly and I wouldn't blame anyone for stopping there.
But then, I learned that the local Cattle Drive would be the week before my blog post was due.
Attending the cattle drive meant getting up at the crack of down and driving way out to the outskirts of town. It meant messy hair and pajamas. PERFECT for the tour.
I used the EYMM Riley Sleep Shirt in a size 4 for my nearly 4 year old. I love the length on this shirt and while I did technically size up, I'm happy to know that my daughter will be able to wear this for more than just a few weeks. I used the same woven fabric from the applique to do the hem facing, which is a great way to tie in the fabrics.
I do want to note that this pattern uses a sleeve cut on the fold for this pattern. For a loose fitting pajama that is ok with me. Also, there are no layers. However, the way the pattern is nested this really isn't a problem. Sizes newborn-4t are on one set of pages and 5-18 are on a second set. This definitely saves paper.
Already own the Riley? I can confidently recommend any of the other EYMM patterns too. And don't miss the coupon code!
