sewing: flannel christmas pajamas imagine gnats

This post is written by Brooke of Olivers Fancy.

We have a tradition every year where I try to make handmade pjs for Christmas Eve. I was doing some research on what fabric I wanted to use this year when I came across this Kaufman mammoth flannel. And the lightbulb went off- flannel Christmas pajamas would be perfection!

I love all the Mammoth flannel but this flannel in red is particularly perfect for Christmas.

I used the Parsley Pants pattern for all three boys pants. This is a great basic kid pants pattern, and I love using it. It does start at 2t so I did some guestimating on sizing it down to an 18 month size pant for Charlie, and it mostly worked.

I should have allowed a little more room for the big diaper bum so theyre a bit tight in his hip area but not unwearably so.

The big boys are wearing a size 5 and 7 I did size up for each of them because I want these to fit all winter. You can tell theyre nice and roomy, but I think they look super comfy! I love this little patch pocket I added to the back for some fun contrast.

Oh, and Rachael even sent me some elastic for the waistbands. Did you know she has elastic in her shop? I didnt and now Im super pumped to know that because its so convenient to just order the elastic with my fabric!

Gentle Giant Blankets in New Colors Purl Soho

We are so taken with our new Gentle Giant colors that we want to recreate every project weve ever made in the new palette. Alas, we are dreamers but even more so, doers. So weve made choices and among them, our Granny Square Blanket in Gentle Giant and our Colorful Corner Blanket came out winners.

Sometimes the gray days of winter beg for a playful touch, whether in one corner or at the center of a square. Injecting jolts of color into these big-stitch blankets give them a thoroughly modern feel and and a get-through-winter-with-a-smile power.

Our soft and cozy 100% merino Gentle Giant is pure pleasure and now comes in 21 colors! Weve dipped into our six new colors to put together some new Gentle Giant Blanket Bundles: a new 12-color Bundle for the Granny Square Blanket, plus seven new 9-skein Bundles for either the Granny Square or Colorful Corner Blanket. The original collection of Bundles is still available, too, so lots of choices to make: Crochet or knit? Playful or serious? Lots of colors or a few? All of the above?

sewing: flannel linden sweatshirt imagine gnats

This post is written by Heidi of Handmade Frenzy.

Hi friends! I am happy to be hanging out here again this week. Im joining in for Flannel Week, and I have all the comfy cozy feels going on with this flannel Linden Sweatshirt!

For years, Ive drooled over this particular Mammoth Flannel print; it is called Americana. I was so excited to finally get my hands on some! I could only picture it as a cozy shirt to cuddle up with, and the Linden Sweatshirt just stood out in my mind as the perfect match.

Now, obviously, the Linden Sweatshirt is a pattern drafted for knits, and flannel is a woven. But there is plenty of ease written into the pattern, and I decided to use the flannel only for the front and back bodice.

I cut the flannel on the bias and things worked out just great! I made no changes whatsoever, just cut and sewed the straight size I fit into on the size chart!

Prior to cutting, I held the flannel up to my body to help decide if I wanted to cut the print on the bias or not. It was obvious that it had more drape on the bias than on the grain, so that made my decision for me.

I only had a yard of the flannel to work with and was able to juuuust eek out a size 6 on the bias! So if you are a larger size, and want to do the same, be sure to order fabric accordingly.

I paired this flannel with buttery soft and drapey, stretch french terry rayon/lycra in heathered grey, that is also in the shop here. The colors of the two fabrics compliment each other very nicely, and the weights work really well together as well.
