Each year for christmas (sorry :oops: ) I buy my kids new pyjamas. This year I'd like to buy them some ecofriendly PJ's that don't cost an arm and a leg! Any ideas?

Well, two arms and two legs spring immediately to mind :lol:

Which reminds me - I need a new coat so I can get it after smartass replies :hiding:

Oddly enough they really look forward to it! They wear them on christmas eve - it's part of the tradition. If I didn't buy them they'd be disappointed! Yes - I have strange kids! :lol:

hmmm - could you not make some?

btw my little one is strange too - wrapping paper confuses him! so i dont wrap presents ( have amazing places to hide things though) he couldnt understand that you would willingly want to rip up paper telling me last year 'no it breaks it' when showing him how to unwrap it.

at least he saves me a little cash with wrapping paper ,even if i do use brown paper as its much much cheaper than the facny xmas themed stuff and just tie it up with odd and ends from my ribbon box, and yes i gather all the ribbons up and return them or re-use. :oops:

Hmmm no - I can use a hammer and nails fine but can barely thread a needle!

Millims, I'd love some eco pajamas for Christmas. Room for a little one? :iconbiggrin:

Failing Millims adopting me, does anyone know where to buy nice brushed cotton for making grown up pajamas from an at least eco friendly ish fabric supplier? I only sem to find poly cotton and don't know any ethically sound places to buy fabric from.

Jill :iconbiggrin:

Jill there's always room for one more - the only problem is you'd have to put up with us! :lol:

Green fibres sell organic pyjamas and material - don't know how they are pricewise, though.
