Two granny gowns and two pairs of jammie bottoms. Doesn't my oldest niece look impressed! She loves horses so thats why it is made with horse flannel. The younger one has dragonflies in pastels, the wings glitter. The two boys liked their jammie bottoms but the youngest put them on saying, "where's the top?" Took a bit to explain there were only bottoms! Guess next year I have to supply the tops too! lol

I always wore a flannel nightgown like those when I was a kid. They don't seem to sell them much anymore... Well done!

Thanks for bringing back a memory!  I loved flannel granny gowns when I was a little girl.  My mom also made "granny caps" to go with mine.  They looked like that nightcap that the old woman on the old tweety and sylvester cartoons wore.  When I saw your pics, it threw me back instantly.  Thanks for sharing!

I always liked them because you could watch tv and curl your feet up under them like a blanket. This flannel was super thick, specially the horse flannel. I finished both of these the morning of our family Christmas get together-I still owe the oldest girl a fleece blanket-when I get to it! lol

Thanks for the kind words.

Lovely work!

My granny and mama made me lots flannel gowns as a girl... I loved them, and I still do!

What great gifts, and when you tailor them to a child's tastes they become not just gifts but precious memories, too!

Good job!
