More Pajama Pants

This summer, I made myself another pair of pajama pants.  You might recall that I made a pair in a beginner sewing class.  I was originally going to try to make my own pattern based on a pair of pajamas that I loved, but since I was going to use quilter’s cotton and the pajamas were made with knit, I was afraid it wasn’t going to work out.  I really liked the fabric that I had so I didn’t want to chance ruining the pants, so I ended up using the Kwik Sew pattern again.

These are so easy to make and are so comfortable!  I didn’t make the same adjustments that I made the first time I made them and they fit better this time….I’m also heavier than I was when I first made them.  (These pics are pre pregnancy pics, so I am comparing non pregnancy weight)

Now that I have a serger, this was even faster to make than with a regular machine.  You can easily still use a sewing machine, but be sure to zig zag or overlock the edges if you use quilter’s cotton.  You don’t want a ton of loose threads to cut after every wash.

I highly suggest trying out pajama pants or shorts.  They have room for mistakes, but are easy and then you get something comfortable to lounge around in.  You can use different types of fabric as well…quilter’s cotton, knit, flannel, etc.

If you follow me on Facebook and Twitter, then you already know, but I am going to be teaching a Basic Tote Bag class at my local quilt shop!!  I’m super excited and nervous at the same time.  I love helping others learn, but have never officially taught a class, especially for sewing.  If you are local, be sure to check it out and sign up if you can.  Here is the quilt shop’s website with all of the details:  http://www.roycequilting.com/classes.htm
