Here’s a super easy way to make your kiddo some new PJ trousers.
1 get some of their old ones and lay one leg on top of your folded fabric. If they are no too short or small cut some extra width or length. In any case add 1.5/2 cm seam allowance. Whatever you like working with. As long as you remember what you used 😉
3 lay this cut out piece on the next piece of folded fabric. Cut slightly bigger widthways for the back.
4 lay two leg pieces right sides together, pin, and stitch the outside leg and inside leg. Not the crotchet seam! Repeat for the other leg.
6 turn one leg inside out.
7 put the trouser legs inside each other, the one you turned the right way around inside the other one. Line up the crotch seam, starting with the centre seam and pin out from there.
8 stitch the whole crotch seam. Voila you now have some pants!
9 hem the bottoms
10 cut some chunky elastic. I use 2.5/ 1″ wide elastic as it’s nice and comfy. I cut it slightly smaller than my son’s waist circumference.
11 fold over the waist by 1cm and stitch. Fold over by 3cm and stitch again? Leaving a gap at the back for the elastic to be fed through. I like using a triple zigzag stitch at this stage
12 feed the elastic through. Hold the ends of he elastic together and stitch them together securely. Make sure it’s not twisted before you do so!!
13 catch your kiddo and make them wear them so you can take their picture!
