Pajama Pants

With the weather warming up, the kids needed some new pajamas. I keep checking on them at night and finding them all sweaty in flannel and polar fleece. So last Friday I pulled out some stash fabric and went to work. Jack got two pairs because he has less jammies over all. The girls love to match and love the sea friends fabric. I really like making lots of pairs at once, it seems to go faster.
One thing I do when I make them clothes at home is make sure and put a fabric tag in the back. This way they know, and their dad knows, which way is which. Just take two scraps of fabric and cut into little squares. Stitch the squares on three sides right sides together. Then turn them right side out. Put then unfinished edge in the waistband while when you sew it. I used to stitch the size on the tags, but the kids wear these until they are unwearable, so I don't worry about it any more.
