Super Simple PJ pants

This is another simple DIY sewing projects anyone can do…  These little pants took me maybe 20 minutes from start to finish…  Also used my serger (Overlocking ) machine for all the stitching except the hem and waistband.

Supplies I used to make these Super Simple PJ pants:

  • Flannel fabric
  •  1 inch wide non-roll elastic
  • pins
  • tape measure
  • scissors
  • sewing machine

I took a pair of pj pants that fit my daughter really good and used them as my pattern.  Fold pants in half and cut 2 leg pieces along the fold of the fabric.   Making sure to leave a seam allowance for sewing it together.  Pinned them together at the center seam.  Serged them together.  Opened them up and matched up the seams and serged up the legs.  Turned right side out, serged around the waistband and legs.

Fold the waistband over once and top stitching around edge making sure to leave an opening for threading the elastic though. Once the elastic is all the way through even it out and sew edges together.  Close up the edge of your waistband and your pj pants are all done…

These little pj pants make a great gift for the holidays…

My kids love them.

If you have any questions about how to make these leave me a comment and I will do my best to help.
