Avengers Pajamas





My little guy is very much into Marvel super heroes lately. He has a gazillion Marvel action figures and Legos; he has started playing the Lego Marvel Superheroes video game with his brother; and at bedtime he almost always chooses a book featuring Iron Man, Spiderman or the Avengers. 

When he went to they fabric store with me a few weeks back he picked out this Avengers fabric, so I decided to make him some pajamas with it.  I used a vintage sewing pattern for the pajama pants.  The pattern has only one piece for each leg which worked well for this fabric since it is a pretty large scale pattern; it allows the images to be unbroken by a side seam.  I modified the pattern slightly by making the legs straight instead of tapered.



For the t-shirt I used the raw-edged raglan pattern from Sewing for Boys (affiliate link).  This is my go-to t-shirt pattern for the kids, although I rarely do the raw-edged thing.  It is super quick to sew up on my serger and, for pajamas, I can just leave the sleeves and bottom un-hemmed.  In this case, I was up-cycling an old shirt of mine for the sleeve fabric, so I re-used the hems.

I appliqued a few leftover panels from the Avengers fabric on to the front of the shirt with a zig-zag stitch and - as my little guy would say - "Wall-la!" a comfy matching set of PJs.

And now, I think someone wants to read a story.

  1. I really like the addition of the panels that you added to the shirt, was a awesome idea I'll keep stored in my back pocket!

  2. The Disney Company decided to change the title of the film in the United Kingdom. Instead of Marvel's Avengers it was released as Marvel's Avengers Assemble. This is because the company did not want the public to confuse the film with a TV series in the UK that has the same name. https://afdah.se/movie/watch-deadpool-online-293660
