My nephew needs new pajama pants for Christmas. I thought it would be fun to make him some, especially since I can get enough on sale flannel to make three pair for the price of one pair at the store.

I normally quilt, so I'm not great at following traditional patterns, mainly because I'm not used to them and some of the terminology and little marks.

Because he lives an hour away I can't easily swipe a pair that fits and make a pattern, and most of his current ones are too small anyway.

So, can someone recommend a good pattern, or better yet, free tutorial, for making boys PJ pants? I saw the craftster PJ pant tutorial but, since I don't have any of his current ones, it won't work in this instance.

And finally, if you have any good boy flannel that you want to trade for some other fabric, I have a big stash of cottons I use for quilting and I'd love to see if we could work something out. I have a really tight budget this year, so trading is good. :-) He likes green, superheroes, nascar, sports, you know... boy stuff. :-)

I would say go to the salvation army or goodwill and try to find a pair in a size that's more current for him and make a pattern from those. 

Petchy's 10 minute pants are more for toddler's, but I use them with my son who is now in size 6 boys and the pattern still works, her's is a free tut.

A good source for fun flannel would be sheets.  Again check out the thrift stores or garage sales (altho it may be too cold for those where you live)  or places like TJ Maxx or Marshals where they are cheaper.  A twin sized sheet is 5 square yards of fabric, which can be a  lot of pj's =)

I'll look up the 10 minute pants for sure. And I just found out (a friend called) that JoAnn.com extended their Thanksgiving sale due to some website problems over the weekend. So I got 8 yards of flannel (you have to buy in whole yd. increments and I wasn't sure 1 yd. would be enough), plus some fleece (I will use the leftover flannel to make a blanket and back it with the fleece) for $21. That will easily be 4 pr. of pajama pants if not more.

:-) And yeah, I was thinking about going to Goodwill and getting some really cheap pants to use as a pattern.

Thanks!
