Kids Clothes Week~~Fall 2013

I started my kids clothes week a bit early since I won't have much time to sew this week.  Tomorrow my son starts a two week intensive treatment program for his eczema which requires us to be at the hospital for about 10 hours a day.  In preparation for this I did make him several pairs of pajamas!  These will be used as part of the "wet wrap" technique they use at National Jewish Health to help heal the skin.  The pajamas needed to be cotton knit and snug fitting.  I had the perfect patterns in my arsenal to make the perfect jammies. 

For the shirt I used the Flashback Skinny Tee and for the bottoms I used Fancy Pants Leggings.  About a year ago I found some great monster knit fabric at Joann's and used that for one pair.  The other pair ended being one pair of bottoms and two tops.  For these jammies I used up the very end of the monster fabric, some grey knit I picked up as a remnant and some knit scraps I had.  The sleeves had to be pieced on both tops but I like how they turned out.  I also like my smaller left-over pile!   I also had some race car knit left over from making jammies once before (that are completely worn out).  I paired the race cars with some solid color knit I had in my stash to make this pair. 

Thumbs up for the new "cozy and soft" monster pajamas, he refused to take them off!  This pair has a contrasting black bum panel to match the cuffs.  I also used ribbing (with some spandex in it) for the waistband.  I wasn't sure how well they would stay up, but they work beautifully.
Two more shirts and a pair of bottoms that will mix and match with the monster jammies.  I really like how the two-tone sleeves came out and it allowed me to get two shirts done instead of just one.  I also used the black ribbing for the waist band. 
Race car pajamas to replace the pair he has worn out.  I love how the colors turned out on this pair.  The red top and navy blue bum panel and cuffs match this print perfectly.  For this pair I used some red elastic on the waist.
