Green flannel with pine and berry print and the book Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross

Stitch Up a Winter Classic: Flannel Pajama Bottoms

Fabric, maker supplies, and books compete for shelf space in our house. We depend on the local library for many books but some you just gotta have – like Heather Ross’ classic Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching. A mix of clothing (adults, kids and babies), accessories, and home goods patterns, it is my go-to for pajama bottoms. When teaching my daughter to sew, I leaned into this pattern several times. It’s a good one for learning a bit about fit and getting comfy sewing straight seams and slight curves.

If you’re looking for gift ideas that can be stitched in a few hours, the pajama bottoms take about 2-1/2 hours to make, start to finish. Or, if you’re looking for a gift for a sewist – beginner or experienced – bundle Weekend Sewing or another pajama bottom pattern with flannel fabric.

A note: Weekend Sewing was first published 2009 but is still available. Check with your local bookseller or find it on Amazon. There are plenty of pajama patterns out there, double-check before purchasing to make sure the pattern includes your size.

With presents finished and ready to go out the door, I’m finally getting around to making a pair of pajama bottoms for myself using flannel purchased years ago! Happy sewing!
