Easy Kids Pajamas
Learn to Sew Project

Kids pajamas are so easy to make and pajamas are an excellent project to learn to sew.  Make pajama pants and give them as gifts at Christmas or birthdays.

If you are making pajamas with your kids, let them choose the color and fabric. Sewing pajamas makes a great weekend craft idea. 

Kids Pajamas

You can almost never have enough pairs of PJ's. My kids wear their flannel bottoms for lounging around the house. There are plenty of patterns and fabrics to choose from, and the same pattern can be used for boys or girls.

My daughter  made her first pair of pajamas in one afternoon. She wanted to make a pattern from an existing pair of pjs she had. They are her favorite, so I helped her draft a pattern and this is the result.

Drafting your own pattern is not hard, but it is a little more time consuming. If you would like to make a pajama pattern click the link.

If you would prefer to purchase a pajama pattern, I have a couple of examples below of some easy pajamas patterns that you can use over and over.

I recently made these pj shorts for a birthday gift. I used flannel fabric that I already had. The pattern is McCalls 6848. The pattern was very easy and offers a jumper style included in the same pattern envelope. I will try this style next.

Kids Pajama Fabric

When you choose a fabric for your pajamas, make sure the fabric is fire safe. The fabric you purchase from the store or online should be of fire safe code, but it wouldn't hurt to ask and make sure.

Some fabric suggestions would be; flannel, cotton, stretch knits, stretch terry, stretch velour. There are so many prints for kids to suit their taste and personality. Below are some examples from online fabric stores.

Flannel Fabric Samples

Flannel pajamas, they're a must have for cold weather days. Check out these cute fabrics available on Amazon.com.

Cotton Fabric Samples

Cotton is nice in the summer when sleeping at night can be uncomfortable. Crisp cotton pajamas are comfortable and light weight.

Stretch Jersey Fabric Samples

Stretch jersey is a great choice for summer or winter pajamas. The easy stretch fabric makes for a comfy pair of pj's. 

I never tire of making kids pajamas. They are easy to make, they make a wonderful personal gift and if you are learning to sew, they make a great practice project. 

Happy Sewing!
