Homemade PJs

This year for Christmas, I made everybody new pajama pants rather than buying new jammies.  And let me tell you.  After whipping all of these out (with no pattern) so quickly, I doubt I will every buy pajama pants again.  They cost me less than $3.00 and an hour to make.

Using a combination of tutorials found here and here (thank you Pinterest!), I simply used pants my children currentlywear to make a "pattern".  And really it wasn't even a pattern; I just laid the old pants on top of my fabric and cut around them, making sure to leave extra room for PJ-comfyness and growing room. Probably not the most ideal method, but it worked.


For my daughter, I added a $5.00 t-shirt from Target to complete her pajamas.

I even made a pair for my sister.

Now.  Do you think any of my children would stand still in their new jammies for a photo?
Not a chance.
Not individually.
Not together.
So...just imagine 3 little ones (and a slightly larger auntie) all wearing their pjs.
I'm also happy to say that not only have all the jammies been worn several times since Christmas, they have even held up being washed that many times without falling apart.  Success!! ;)

What homemade gifts did you give for the holiday season?  Do you have any in mind for Valentine's Day?

What cute jammies! That's a clever idea to use the old pair as a pattern!
