Kwik Sew 3126 - Race Car Pajamas

A couple of nights ago my son came over to me on his way down to bed and with a very sad look, said, "Mom, can you please make my race car pajamas while I'm sleeping tonight?"  Awwww.  Unfortunately, I couldn't that night, but I did get to it last night.  I cut them out at the same time I cut out the soccer pajamas and they've just been sitting there ever since.  They got pushed aside with the daughter's clothing projects and then my samples for sale.  Once I got started on them, they went together really quickly.


He's pretty excited about them.  I'm hoping to capitalize on that and move out the beloved Thomas The Tank Engine pajamas that he's been wearing for nearly two years.  I expect to hear a big rrrriiiiiiiiiip everytime he wriggles into them.


I had just enough fabric for these, since it is a one-way print and I wanted to match the pattern at center front.  The black-and-white checkered background isn't printed on-grain which was a little annoying while cutting and sewing.  Even though I'm not a racing fan, I find this little guy pretty hard to resist in these snuggly flannel pj's.

  1. Soo cute! What a perfect match at the center front! Wow! My dh has a few higher end shirts like that and tells me that I need to do that when making him a shirt...... You did a fantastic job matching and it looks like he is very pleased with his new pj's!

  2. These are really adorable! I'm tossing around the idea of making my boys some pj's as Christmas gifts. I like to hear that they went together easily.
