It’s that time of year again . . .

Most of you know or have figured out that I’ve moved to a new house. This house is huge, beautiful and on lovely acreage. I absolutely love the house. The only one negative is that it’s drafty and can be a bit on the cold side. I’m fine with that and I actually prefer my house temperature to be in the low 60s or high 50s when I sleep. My kids, on the other hand, would love to live in a 70 degree house. So, instead of turning up the thermostat, I’m going to make them warm flannel jammies for Christmas. I’ve started my preliminary shopping and have found some very cute stuff at Fabric.com. I already have some nice cotton knit for the shirts but I want to make them some cozy flannel pants for lounging and bed. Here are some of my top picks for my girls. Some of these are expensive and I’m cheap frugal so I’m not sure what I’ll actually buy. All of these are from Fabric.com. I’m totally in love with the pink elephants. Each of those is an active link so you can just click on them and go see them at Fabric.com.

I had to go back and add these to my post because they are so dang cute! They have it in thermal waffle knit (left) and a jersey knit (right).

These are all very cute. I think it is healthier to sleep in a cold house anyway!

I'm new to your great blog and I have never ordered fabric on-line, is this site safe to order from? These flannels look cute to make pj's that I am just starting to sew for my youngest daughter.

Yup, the pink elephants are absolutely adorable! You sound like DH, he would sleep with the window cracked open in December if I would let him! Me? The warmer, the better!

Very cute flannels, your girls will love them.

Denise Angela,
yes, fabric.com is safe to order from--I've ordered several times, especially like that the shipping is free on orders over $35

Dawn,
I love them all, but I think the Irving Street fabrics are my favorites for bedding.
I will be curious to read your remarks about fabric.com. It has been a while since I ordered from them, but I did have hit or miss experiences back in 2005. Hopefully they have improved.

Love those flannel lions. Congrats on your new digs. Is there a nice sewing space there for you? If I remember right you had just done the garage over to your sewing room at the last house and that looked pretty comfortable.
