Merry Christmas... Ribbit!!!

My son, Bryan, wanted to get in on the sewing blog action. He asked me to post this picture of him in his Santa Frog PJs.

I made these last winter, alas, not quite in time for Christmas, but he didn't mind. I found this adorable fabric at Hancock's. It has frogs wearing Santa hats all over it. When I saw it I had to buy it. What could be better for a little boy who loves frogs? I found the striped piping fabric later at Hobby Lobby. I had planned to use a plain red and white striped fabric for a "candy cane" effect, but all I could find was this stripe with two shades of green, two shades of red, and white. Actually, I think it turned out even better than I thought it would. I used a New Look pattern, I can't remember the number right now, and it was super quick and easy. The only change I made was adding the piping to the sleeves and the neck and front edges. We also made a flannel pair with, you guessed it, frogs all over, and a Star Wars pair featuring Darth Vader and Storm Troopers. Somewhere around here, I have some Spiderman fabric waiting for its turn.
