I made all these pajama pants for family for Christmas. I think I made them in one night too. They are really easy to make and soo needed right now. I used fleece for all except Emily’s pair I used ultra cuddle and a fuzzy green dot fabric (reminds me of monster fabric). Jason and Emily’s have a side pocket on them. My favorite pair besides mine is Poppi’s with the donuts and houndstooth bottom. I made my own pattern and adjusted as I see fit for each person.
Adam= Brother in law
Emily= brother’s girlfriend
Poppi= Grandpa in law
For my pj’s I made the bottoms with the Cynthia Rowley twill tape and coral piping. I made the top off a whim and it turned out ok. I added (not really needed after was said and done) elastic pre-smocked fabric for the back, striped t-shirt fabric from the front bottom and is attached to scalloped elastic, and for the top is double layer floral flannel with cordinating fleece straps to the pants. I let the top come together as is did, no pattern was needed.
p.s. I really wanted to make some of them footie pj pants but didn’t have the time. Maybe next year.
