I’m absolutely sure that the article of clothing I have sewed most often during my three and a half years of sewing is pajama pants.
I have made several pairs for gifts, such as these.
And I have quite a collection myself. I would say I’ve made at least 20 pairs total over the last three years.
Recently I’ve made a few minor upgrades to how I amake them. I’ve been adding tags to the back of them so its easier to tell which side is the front. These were a gift from my good friends, Suzanne and Colin – they were the ones who threw the fun Christmas party I made Ugly Sweaters for a couple months ago.
And at my husband’s request, I modified the pattern I use to include side seam pockets.
Usually on Black Friday, I hit up the fabric store because flannel is inevitably on sale for under $2 a yard and I can stock up for a while. When I did that in 2014, I made sure to pick up a couple of geeky licensed prints, since I’ve been on the geeky clothing creation kick for almost a year now. Naturally, pajama pants needed to adapt. My favorite geeky pair are the sleeping ponies above. But I also made some fun Wonder Woman ones last week…
… and a pair of Transformer ones for my hubby.
I think I’m temporarily out of geeky flannel now, but still have a few other cut flannel pairs for a rainy day, easy project.
Do you have a favorite pair of pajama pants? What makes them your favorite?
