Spider-man Pajama Tutorial


Here’s another surprise tutorial for you! c2 realllllly wanted me to make him some Spider-man p.j.s today so here they are! I figured while I was about it I might as well make up a tutorial for them! :)

Image

I started with 1 1/2 yds of Spider-man flannel and used every last bit of it! LOL You will also need some 1″ elastic and possibly a button…. I think I will be going back and adding one to his. ;)

Image

Step 1- Find a shirt that fits your child well. The one I picked was a little smaller than I wanted for his p.j.s. I wanted to give him a little room to grow.

Image

Remove the cat.

Image

Remove BOTH cats…..

Step 2- Lay your t-shirt down on the fabric matching up the folds. Use the shirt as a guide and cut around it.

Image

Step 3- Folding your fabric the OTHER way use your newly made front as your guide and cut around it.

Image

Also, I cut a little notch in the back to make sure I could pull it over his head. He HATES buttons… SIGH… So I was hoping to get by without adding any

Image

Step 4- Find a pair of pants (or shorts if you prefer), fold them in half and pull the crotch ALL the way out.

Image

Step 5- Lay the pants/shorts on the fold and use them as a guide to cut around.

Remove the cat so you can finish cutting…….

Step 6- Again, folding your fabric in the other direction, use your newly made leg as a guide and cut.

Image

Sleeves!! I almost forgot to tell how to make the sleeves!! LOL

Lay your top over fabric with the fold at the top. Use your sleeve “hole” as a guide line to cut the sleeve, coming out and down a little past your guide. Do this for both sleeves.

Now that you have all your pieces you can get ready to sew them up!

Image

Remove the DARN CAT!!!!

Step 7- Pin front of shirt to back of shirt, right sides together and sew together

Image

Step 8- Pin and sew the hem of your sleeves, then fold the sleeves right sides together to sew the bottom of the sleeve.

Image

Step 9- Pin your sleeve to the sleeve hole with the shirt and sleeve right sides together. Sew them up!

Image

Step 10- Pin and sew the hem of the shirt

Image

Step 11- Roll the neck line and pin. Sew it up! But take this sloooowly…..

Image

Remove the DRATTED CAT!!!! Good grief!

Image

Step 12- Take one leg and pin the side with right sides together sew up from the bottom to the point of the crotch. Do the same with the other leg.

Image

Step 13- Turn ONE leg right side out and stuff it down the other leg, matching up seams. Pin in place and sew from the top of one side, down to the crotch and up to the other side.

Image

Step 14- Turn pants wrong side out and pin 2″ from the top to make your elastic casing

Step 15- Sew your elastic casing, leaving an opening to thread the elastic through

Grab your child and measure the elastic around the waist. Other people will say to add a little for seam allowance but I find that always makes the pants/skirt/shorts a little too big. ;)

Image

Step 16- Put a safety pin in both ends of the elastic and thread one end through (you can either hold tightly to both ends OR pin one end to the fabric (Thanks, LaVonne)

Image

Step 17- Sew ends of elastic together.

Image

Step 18- Sew the opening closed.

Step 19- Pin and hem the bottoms of the pants! (I forgot to take a pic of this but I figure if you’ve made it this far…. ;))

Now your done! YAY!! Your little one has new p.j.s!! :)) You could always do it this way for grown-up p.j.s, too. ;)
