Back again with Mister 3 to showcase a new-to-us Peekaboo Pattern Shop pattern, the Cozy Kid Coveralls!
This tour is hosted by Made for Little Gents, and sponsored by Peekaboo Pattern Shop. At the end of the post, you'll see a giveaway to enter for a $20 shop credit to Peekaboo Pattern Shop!
I've sewn up several of Peekaboo's pj patterns and really liked them, so I wanted to try something I hadn't made yet. The Alex & Anna pjs (winter and summer) are staples around here! I enjoyed making several of the Classic Zipper Pjs a few years back for a new baby, so when I saw the Cozy Kid Coveralls I really wanted to try the snap option instead (and I'll be making a few more, with a hood, for day wear!)
I ordered this fun school bus fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics in a cotton spandex jersey, originally thinking I'd use it for my youngest, but when this guy saw it he HAD to have it. Oh well, I think maybe the 2 year old doesn't really care what I put on him...
We had fun finding his Fisher Price school bus and picking out a "bedtime story" for his pictures (in the middle of the day). He likes "modeling" for me because it usually involves candy bribery of some type! ;)
I love several features of this pattern. The raglan sleeves (they are cut on the fold, just a note); the snap placket that is so easy to construct and easy for kids to dress themselves; the gusset that allows for ease of movement and comfortable wear; the versatility! I picked up some French terry for a heavier daytime outfit, and it can also be made with fleece and sized up for an outside coverall in cold weather.
Did I mention the feet? My kids love footie pajamas (he has two older sisters who made me bring them to pick out fleece for their own after they saw these!) and I have a stash of non slip fabric just for that reason. I lined them with the same denim blue cotton spandex as the toes, cuffs, and collar, for comfort.
Isn't he cute? I've never seen a kid so happy for new pajamas!
