Hi everyone. As im sure many of you know, JoAnns was having some super sales last week and i got sooo much flannel fabric cuz it was only 99 cents a yard (i know right?!?). So, i figured i'd just make everyone pajama pants for christmas. However, upon further thought, i believe i dont have the time to do that- especially because im a newbie with the sewing machine.

So my question is, what else can i do with flannel?
i was thinking pillows, scarves, boxers, hot rice satchels, and makeup pouches. But i have to make stuff for 5 guys (sucks being the only girl in the family) and i dont think they'd get much of a kick out of a makeup pouch. The fabric i got for them is white with red and green money signs and two others with deer and owls and stuff (mimicking abercrombie)



and just for fun, this is the material for my mom and friends, respectively:


So again, any ideas for projects that wont take very long made from flannel? I will be forever grateful!!  Grin Thanks!

boxer shorts are super easy to make,use less fabric than pj pants,  and if you are in a cold climate, flannel ones would probably be appreciated.

so how might i go about making those? could i use a pant pattern and just cut it off at the appropriate length?

I haven't sewen in a long time, but I once had a pajama pattern which included both shorts and pants pattern as well as a top.  I made both the pants and shorts for myself and then thought what the heck, this would make good boxers so I made my dad some boxers out of the pattern, and shortened it.  If you have access to their underwear (which I assume you do because you are their sister) you could always make some measurements and use that as a guidline for shortening the pj pants into boxers. 

I should have just said yes, but I got there eventually  Tongue

The men in my life (my DH and dad) prefer the opening to actually be closed (I usually sew any store bought ones shut for My husband).  I hope that helps.

Maybe one of them plays something called footbag [hacky sack]. Check out the styles here

Or maybe one of them has a back/neck pain and would appreciate a U-shaped neck cushion? [also good for traveling on the plane].

Good luck!
