Christmas (longies) in July

unfortunately i haven't really been inspired to do much knitting this summer. i just couldn't get excited about any project ideas enough to pick up the needles.

so i've started thinking ahead to winter, and yes, Christmas. I want to make my daughter some Christmas longies this year, and i'm looking for some ideas. i've used (and love) the EviePants pattern before, so i'm just looking for design inspiration (color choice, stripes or no stripes, ruffles, embellishments)

can anyone post some christmas longies photos??

Here's a pair I did a few years ago. My newbie was too small to wear them so they went on their way.

We wore these and passed them along.

Oh I adore dressing my kids up for Christmas. And this year I'll have a newbie to dress too! I'm totally on the hunt for Christmas already - size 3ish months.

Re: Christmas (longies) in July

I didn't knit them but I have been drooling over a pair of lovely gender neutral reindeer longies that Mollie knitted over at Amelia and Macie's boutique...

I also have plans for some cute overalls with Xmas buttons from digits designs
https://www.etsy.com/uk/transaction/141858448
and the balloon custom from Mosaic Moon that should be dying around now...

I just started thinking about my boys Christmas longies too. Lol. Last year I just used a cestari solid in dahlia and got them dark green shirts with reindeer appliques. This year I am planning on using mm stone of destiny and getting white shirts with a Christmas tree with presents under it appliqued. I love making the boys their matching longies. We give them to them Christmas eve and they wear them to bed so when I take their pics on Christmas morning they are matching. Sharie at pitterpants has some cute ones for a girl and a boy with matching shirts.
