Pajamas and some sisterly love!

Hello again and thanks so much for stopping by!

A few months ago, I made these pajamas as part of the Bundle Up sale through Pattern Revolution (I do pattern reviews over there; if you haven't checked them out, you should!) They were doing an all boys bundle, but I girled it up a bit for my munchkins and designed an iron-on transfer (available below) to go along with their outfits.  I have been meaning to blog about them ever since, but you know how that goes...

As I have probably mentioned before, we are pretty big fans of Frozen around here and that doesn't seem to be coming to an end anytime soon.  So I thought these little short and tank top PJ's were a perfect time to bust out some of my hoarded carefully collected frozen fabric and put it to use.  

I simply made the tops and shorts out of some more girl friendly fabric, skipped the fly on the shorts and added a little ruffle to the bottom.  Voila! Boys boxer set changed to girls short set!

I think they worked out really well and they were super easy and comfortable.  I have another set for each girl (in the opposite fabrics) already cut out and sitting in my "too-due" pile so they each have 2 matching sets.  I think these will go in the suitcases when we take our Disney cruise next year!

One thing I love to do to my shirts is to embellish them with iron on transfers.  I used my much loved  (affiliate link) 
Silhouette CAMEO Electronic Cutting Tool with Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software
to design the emblems and then print them on printable iron-on transfer paper.  I really like the versatility that I have making shirts this way.  It is super easy to use and I can make a shirt in minutes once the emblem is designed.  I've done these for birthday parties and holidays.  It is a nice alternative to embroidering a shirt if you don't own an embroidery machine too.  All you really need is a printer, the iron on transfer paper and an iron.  

I like to use this product (affiliate link)
and have used it tons of times with great success.  I ran out one time and, in a pinch, ran to my local craft store and bought a different brand.  That brand turned bright yellow after washing and parts of the transfer peeled off.  Now I keep lots of Jet-Opaque on hand and only use that.  Lesson learned the hard way :(

I think the outfits turned out great, and the girls were thrilled to take pictures in them because I let them jump on the bed (a rare treat) while I was taking pictures.

One thing I wanted to do with the emblems was make the "frozen-esque" without being over the top (or violating any copyright stuff).  I love the underlying story and how it honors sisterly love so I decided to incorporate that into the shirts.  And with my Olaf shorts...well of course I had to say something about hugs!

I think my girls are both about sisterly bonds and hugs, so they shirts were especially fitting :)

If you would like to make your own shirts for a set of Pj's or just use the emblems for something else, I am including the link to the dropbox file for them today! I included both the cameo file for those of you who have one, and a PDF for those of you who don't.  You can just download the PDF file, print it out on the printable iron-on transfer paper and cut around the edge of the circle. Easy Peasy! 

***A couple notes***

I changed the snowflake on the downloadable one linked below because I wanted to make sure all of the graphics and fonts I used were open market and allowed for this type of use.  But it is still just as cute!

I also changed the pink lettering on the warm hugs file to red and included that for those of you who have boys and maybe don't want the pink letters :) Both the red and pink are included below.
