Jammie pants

I made some flannel pj pants for my kids the other day. I found some Disney Cars movie character flannel a while back at my Hancock and knew the boys would love it. Sometimes Zachary complains that I only make stuff for the girls, but sewing for boys is so limited. I knew they would love some soft jammie pants.The problem with handmade pants is that you (or I should say kids or hubby) can't tell which is the front and those of you who've sewn pants know there is a distinct front and back. I do have my own labels, but my kids are anti label...especially Zachary. So to 'mark' the front without a label I sewed a bow on the front of Kalla's and a button on the boys.

The kids were so thrilled to get ready for bed last night!

These would make a great gift! I didn't save mine for Christmas as my kids actually needed warm jammies right now! I might be on the lookout for some more cool boy fabric though as Z wanted to know why I made Kalla 2 pair (I have a ton of girly flannel in my stash already). :)

Those are so cute! Every year I say I'm going to make us all matching flannel jammies (or, at least, coordinating--not sure DH would love the exact same flannel as the kids, LOL), but every year, we get too close to Christmas and I have too many projects.

Oh, and I just picked up some really cute monkey flannel at Hobby Lobby yesterday that I think would qualify as manly enough, assuming he likes animals. . .

I love the pants & I love how you marked the fronts. I'm going to have to borrow that idea! Beth

Very cute! Those look like some comfy kids!

I just sewed some for my husband for his birthday. Plain grey this time, but he has airplanes already and jeeps waiting to go!
