I love to sew while in my jammies with a cup of coffee close at hand.  Henry Glass has the best fabric for making super pajama bottoms that have quilters going wild.  Jenifer will show you how easy it is to alter any pattern you have laying around to give it that extra special touch.

Following the package instructions, fuse a 2”x 4” HeatnBond® Lite Weight Interfacing piece to the wrong side of front of the pants. This piece of interfacing will give your fabric the stability for the buttonholes so that the fabric doesn’t rip.  Create your buttonholes and finish the casing per the pattern instructions.  With right sides together sew along the long edge of the tie and turn.  Run the fabric tie through the buttonholes and tie in a bow.

Cut 2” from the bottom of the pants (or desired cuff length).  Fold the cuff in half along the long edge and press with wrong sides of the cuff together and stitch with right sides together along the bottom of the pants.  Finish the side seams and you are done.

**Tip** Use a scrap piece of ribbon as a tag to mark the back of your pants. This is especially helpful when sewing for children so that they can quickly tell the front from the back.TooltipText
