"Christmas" PJ sets

I finished two sets of PJs last week.  These are both out-of-town Christmas gifts.  (In case you haven't noticed by now, I kind of take a lax approach to getting the out-of-town Christmas gifts done....they're often mailed sometime in January.)  

The first set of PJs is for my aunt.  She's gotten these cow PJs and these cow PJs in the past, and now she's getting these cow PJs!  (Can you sense a theme?  She works for a company that makes dairy products, and so she loves to collect cow things.)  This particular flannel print was purchased from JAF on Black Friday in 2009, so it's been well-aged. ;)  I am on a kick to try to reduce the amount of fabric sitting on my shelves - or at least ensure reasonable turnover - so I decided that this year she should get the last stashed length of cow flannel.  (Also, I just realized that there has been an eerie pattern at work, and she's now been gifted cow flannel PJs in 2009, 2011, and 2013.  I really had no such pattern in mind!)  The shirt is M5504, and the pants are M3006 - both size L.  I really made no changes, other than adding the drawstring to the pants.  Hopefully she likes them!

Then we have my friend who got the northwoods-ish flannel PJs for her birthday in November.  She had also asked for a pair of lighter-weight jammies, so I dug into my stash and found this Tigger print - pretty sure that was $1-2 per yard at WM in MS, so a bare minimum of 7.5 years ago!  I did have to buy the yellow print to go with it, but that was fine.  These are the same patterns as the cow PJs, but size M for both.  And I brought the print neckband to the front to try to tie the set together a bit.  Hopefully my friend loves them!

January is the most depressing month of the year, generally, so I think getting gifts might be a good thing. :-)

I figure that people don't expect to get gifts in January, so it's a nice surprise. Anyway, that's my justification!
