DIY Pajama

As promised, I’ll be sharing to you my first ever sewing project. I have zero knowledge in sewing machine so when I checked my Pinterest sewing board, I was looking for easy sewing project for beginners like me.

I saw this “easy sew pj pants” and I was glad because there was a pattern already and step by step guide. So I printed the pattern even the blog post. Hehehe! My husband saw me checking the site and he said “pajama agad? Magpillow cover ka muna”.




I did not mind my husband because I don’t like pillow cover because we have enough pillow cover at home and the fabric that I have doesn’t match our bedsheet so sayang lang. I want pajama because I know I can use it. Di rin naman masama mangarap lol. 


Since it was my first time to sew, the fabric that we bought was per kilo not per yard so it is like scrap fabric, P130 per kilo. While sewing, I have the sewing machine manual and the tutorial guide with me. 

I just followed everything and after so many hours, I was able to finish my first ever pajama. I realized that it is not really easy to sew. It needs a lot of patience because I have to make the pattern, cut the fabric, sew the fabric and make sure that the line is straight.

Despite the challenges, there was a sense of fulfillment because even I have no sewing experience at all, I was able to make DIY pajama. And because of my successful pajama, I immediately make pajama for my son. Since I don’t have pattern, I use his pants and added 1 inch per side for allowance. 



It was another successful project but I have to rest because it took me half of the day to finish our matching pajama. 




As of this writing, I already made 5 pajamas. It is supposed to be 7 but the two pairs doesn’t fit my son and my husband waistline. Hanggang legs lang naipapasok. Lol. Nagkamali ko ng pagcut ng fabric. Hehehe!.




I’m aware that the stitches were not perfect but in the eyes of my son, it was a perfect pajama and he was really happy because I’ve made pajamas for him. We’re using the pj's and so far di pa naman nagkakalas kalas after labhan.

  8. Good job, mommy! The last time I attempted sewing (in high school H.E. class), it turned out awful. I don't think sewing is a skill I'm gifted with. My husband, on the other hand....hihihi....
