First of all, I want to apologize for the quality of these photos. It was first thing in the morning and they were taken with a phone. They were all I had, so they’ll have to do. 🙂
All the work I’ve done over the past few months has definitely paid off. Maya and Jacob had the time of their lives for 8 days at the Happiest Place on Earth. Originally I was going to post everything in one big, long post. But I decided to split it up. Prepare for photo overload over the next few days (and a few words sprinkled here and there).
We started the day by waking the kids up at 6:00am to make it to the airport for our morning flight. Thank goodness the airport is only 10 minutes from our house and we didn’t have to wake them up even earlier. They went to bed in their Olaf jammies and we went straight to the airport like that.
I used the Oliver and S Bedtime Story Pajama pants and appliqued Olaf on store bought long sleeve t-shirts for the top. I love when my kids can be all matchy-matchy. I know it won’t last forever, so I take it when I can. They were such a simple and satisfying sew. It was the first time I’ve made these particular PJ pants, and it certainly won’t be the last. These would look great with a contrast waistband and hem a la Gail at probably actually, but I didn’t have any coordinating flannel fabric, so I just kept it simple and left it all the same. In theory, I could have just added an inch or so to the bottom of the pants instead of sewing the hem bands on, but I wasn’t thinking that far ahead when I was cutting out my pieces.
I think I’m going to start making more PJs for the kids. I just love how they look and they are a super simple one evening project. Maya’s are a size 4 and are a tad long, so they will definitely fit her for quite some time. Jacob’s are 18-24 months and they fit. In hindsight I should have made him a 2T, but I didn’t want him tripping over his pants. I have quite a bit of the Olaf flannel left, so he may have another pair by the end of the winter. The fabric I used was Olaf flannel by Springs.
The kids had a great time at the airport! They had an activity cube thing at our gate (thank goodness) so they played with that while Bill got us some breakfast. Maya made friends with a flight attendant earlier when we were checking in and she asked Maya to help her collect the garbage near the end of our flight. Maya was thrilled.
