A Gift a Day Gift Twenty-Eight: Sleep Pants
I used some of the flannel I bought last year on Black Friday sales at Jo Ann Fabrics (it ended up being about 8.00 per bolt of fabric).
To make sleep pants I love this pattern, but alas I don't think it's made anymore (which is a total shame as it's got great beginner sewing instructions for it from cutting fabric onward). Bright side, though, is Simplicity makes various patterns for pants and this is one of many (and they are all equally easy to follow instructions on). Like this one looks promising.
I got my pattern years ago at the thrift store for .10. The previous owner of the pattern had cut it down to the smallest size, but had kept all of the scraps to the pattern to upsize the pattern. So I've been SLOWLY taping one size to another as the kids have grown *laugh*. It takes a little bit to tape the pattern back together, but worth it.
Total Cost To Make Gift: I'd say about 2.00 once you include the cost of the fabric. The elastic waistband I had as I got a bunch from my step-mom in one of her pinata boxes that she sends me and the thread was the same.
Total Time to Make Gift: About an hour and a half once you include cutting time. I love Simplicity patterns for this reason as the patterns are really easy to follow.
