I found 5 1-2 yard lengths of boyish-print flannel and 5 1-2 yard lengths of girly flannel. My daughter is a size 8 now, and I can't think of anything to make for her. I do have a pajama pattern and thought maybe I could make pants OR a top and then get solid flannel to make the other piece. For the boys, pants and then maybe a shirt with some sort of patch to match?

I'd love ideas-- free online patterns are a plus. I'm not the best sewer in the world, though.

That sounds like enough for tops and bottoms, but I guess not? How about matching pj bottoms for you and dd and also for ds and dh? That would be cute. Great holiday gift for next year. You could pick up some matching t-shirts.

flannel makes great pillow cases. Very comfy. Each one takes about a yard.

Flannel quilts are nice too. I'm making one right now for DD. Well, um, I bought the fabric. It'll happen...

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.
