This instructable shows how to make jammie bottoms and a short robe out of a snuggy but you can also upcycle the bottoms out of a fleece or flannel blanket or just use a piece of new material.
For this project you will need:
A sewing machine
thread (not necessarily matching, use what you already have)
elastic or a shoe lace
And about an hour for the entire project
Step 1: Ready Set GO!
2.) Take an old pair of jammies, using the size that you want to make, and place on the snuggy. Make sure there is at least 2 and a 1/2 inches at the top of the jammie bottoms to allow for sewing and then cut the fabric. Look at the pictures to pees how to place them on the Snuggy. If you are making a child size pair of jammie bottoms you will have enough to make either an adult wrap or an altered child size wrap which is what I will be showing in this tutorial. If you want to make an adult pair of jammie bottoms you will have enough fabric but you won't have eonugh for the wrap.
Step 2: Cutting the Jammie Bottoms
Place the jammies on the snuggy with the straight side of the fabric lined up with the folded edges. Cut as directed following the directions in the picture.
Be sure to line up the bottom of the jammies with the bottom of the snuggy. This will prevent you from having to hem the new jammies!
Step 3: Sewing the Legs
Place wrong sides together matching all four of the sides.
Sew a 5/8 seam on both sides as shown in the picture.
Fold the pants right sides together like the last picture shows. Sew a 5/8 seam. This will make the jammie legs.
Step 4: Sewing the Waistband
Fold the fabric over a 1/4 of an inch and sew. Refer to the picture.
Next fold over 1 /12 inches and sew according to the picture.
Turn the jammies inside out.
Step 5: Inserting the Drawstring
The easiest way to get the drawstring though is with a safety pin.
Thread the shoelace through the safety pin like the picture shows.
Step 6: Put the Jammie Bottoms on and Smile!
Now all you have to do is put these warm jammies on and relax.
The next part of the instructable will show you how to make the wrap.
Isn't the redhead cute?
I sure think so!
