Getting a new set of pajama’s has always made me feel good and since so many of us have fond memories of getting pajamas for Christmas, I bet you feel the same. I make my little guy pajamas every year as a Christmas Eve present, but just kinda wing it when it comes to spring and summer. No longer.
I started with the free Christmas Raglan PJ pattern from Melly Sews. With a little alteration, I made my little guy a spring version.
I removed about 9.5in in length from the legs to make shorts, shortened the sleeves to about 3in length, and omitted the ribbed cuffs. Using self fabric worked just fine for the neckband too, though you’ll want to check the stretch in your fabric before you make a shirt you can’t get over the head, ask me how I know.
I was planning to stencil a cute sleepy time saying on the shirt, but little guy set his mind on Easter eggs, a year long favorite for him; and perfect timing. I simply downloaded a free image and used the freezer paper method to make my stencil.
The Little Guy loves his pajamas and the Easter eggs. I already have my eyes out for fabrics to make a Christmas version of the pattern.
With all this pajama inspiration, what pajamas are you adding to your sewing plans?
