My kids affectionately call homemade pajama bottoms “Cozies”  and they prefer wearing cozies to anything I can buy from a store by a mile.  I just finished these sweet little owl fabric pajama bottoms yesterday and wanted to share. These are actually very easy to make.

For these little pants I used  Jackie Clark’s -Britches & Bloomers which goes from newborn to size 4.

I also make cozies for using It’s So Easy Simplicity Pattern 2742.   To make sure I can use and reuse a pattern and make it in different sizes, I trace the pattern onto a piece of lightweight pelon using a fine point black sharpie pen.  Don’t forget to transfer all the directions from the pattern piece and the size.  You can also use tissue paper or freezer paper.

I was just short on enough owl fabric to make a second pair so, I made a cuff at the bottom instead of the ruffle. To do this, I placed the pattern correctly at the top and cut it out so the legs were short.  Then I cut 7″ strips out of the polka dot fabric.  Pressed the strip in half (wrong sides together) and sewed them to the bottom of each pant leg.  I trimmed them straight rather than following the tapered line of the pattern.  Then I finished the pattern as directed.  I just need to put the waistband in today for her… but I love how they turned out.

Adorable! The ruffle detailing really makes the "cozies" even better. Love the print as well!

How cute!
And I am in love with that fabric! I made an apron for my sister out of that spotted owl fabric in a different color. I hated to give it to her!

Adorable!  And fun fabric choice for sure!

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!
