2. One-Hour PJs
I think knit pajamas are so comfortable, so I like to let my kids enjoy them too. These PJs can be made from an adult tee which makes them really quick to make. It comes in sizes 2T-4. I would rate this as an intermediate sewing pattern mostly because knits are a little tricky without some sewing experience.

3. Boys Pajama Pants
This pattern was originally made for a boy, but it’s a great unisex pattern. I love that it’s a cuff instead of a hem since cuffs are so quick to sew. This is a beginning sewing pattern that can be made with flannel or other woven cottons. It comes in size 5.

5. Pajama Pants
Here is another beginner-friendly children’s pajama pattern that is available in many sizes. It comes in sizes 6 months to 7 years. Use flannel or woven cotton for these pants. It’s much easier just making pants for your kids then full sets if you’d like an easier project or you have multiple kids.

6. Pajama Top and Bottom
A classic pajama style for both boys and girls. It only comes in one size, size 4, but could be lengthened to fit taller kids. The pattern recommends flannel or woven cotton, but it’s an intermediate pattern because theres a collar, facing, and button and buttonholes. A confident beginner would be able to make this with extra time and concentration.

8. Boxer Pajama Shorts
Some of you have older kids, so you can’t leave them out. This pattern is drafted in a women’s small, which can fit most teens. Lengthen the shorts for boys to make them more masculine, or lengthen them to the floor for pants. This is a beginner pattern since woven fabric is recommended. Flannel will be warm and cotton wovens will be balmy.
