Handmade Christmas Clothing Ideas

Handmade Christmas Clothing Patterns

Christmas will be upon us before we know it and it’s time to turn our attention to Christmas outfits! Our exclusive winter prints combined with MBJM patterns make for a great combination to craft outfits for day and nightwear.

Whether you follow the Christmas Eve box tradition, love matching Christmas outfits or just want to refresh their winter wardrobe, this blog will be the one for you.

Our reps are fantastic at making the most of our exclusive prints and MBJM patterns so we checked out some of their favourites!

Babies and beyond.

For little ones with cloth bums the MBJM harems give plenty of room in the rear end. Non cloth bums still look good in these too. The MBJM Lightning Leggings have options for both cloth and non cloth bums and are great for parent and me outfits! We like to team ours with the MBJM Eclipse Tee. For little ones the envelope neck is ideal and for older ones you have a standard round neckline option.  For those little wrigglers the MBJM Pick and Mix has the vest options for both cloth and disposable sizing making it a flexible pattern for many children.

The MBJM Four Seasons are also great for wriggly bums as they are super easy to put on come with a variety of options and there’s even a matching ladies pattern too!

Growing Kids

The MBJM High Kick Harems are great for active kids on the go. They have a slim-fitting design with the characteristic harem dropped-crotch, perfect for racing around on Christmas morning.  Knee areas can be reinforced to help clothing last longer for those kids who are too busy adventuring to see what rough stuff they’re clambering through!

Another great pattern for active kids is the MBJM Over It Alls pattern. This is a versatile item that can be worn alone in summer or layered up in winter and can be worn oversized initially to give longer life span for growing kids.

Layer Up

A favourite of our Brand Rep team is MBJM Hot Chocolate pattern, shown here in our Winter Bears and Driving Home For Christmas print. It’s a great layer for the colder days and in these prints just screams Christmas!

Layers that look a little different

If you want to add a little interest to their cosy layers why not try the split collar MBJM Adventurer Raglan Sweatshirt . This pattern has lots of options for finishing around the neckline. We wanted to add interest buttons but inserted hidden velcro underneath for easy kids access.

Dress Up

The MBJM Penelope Pinny is perfect for dressing up whilst still being comfy and our range of denim and cord is the perfect fabric to make them! The MBJM Penny Pinny is a mini version for a cute mummy and me Christmas day outfit

The MBJM Beachcomber pattern is the perfect pattern dress for little ones to revel in the Christmas Day excitement too! This also is available as a grown up version for another opportunity at mummy and me outfits!

Ready for Bed

Whether its special Christmas Eve new pyjamas or new long sleeve PJ’s for the cooler months we are big fans of teaming up the patterns to find the perfect combinations for your child’s body shape. We love the MBJM harem for relaxed comfort and easy fit. We like how easy they are to get up and down for either nappy changes or trips to the toilet in the night. We team them with the MBJM Eclipse Tee which has a good body length preventing cold backs.

For a slimmer fit PJ try the MBJM Lightning Leggings with the Emi Top.

Mix and match your favourite patterns to find a combination that works best for your child.
