Make Jammies Last Longer


The Easter Bunny was nice enough to bring my son this cute pair of Dinosaur Jammies!  My Nathan LOVES dinosaurs – so I was super sad when I noticed he had a growth spurt and within 3 months they were high water on him.

I hadn’t gotten around to packing them up and I’m so glad I hadn’t.  I all of a sudden realized that I could easily hem the pants. Why had I never thought of doing this in the past?  This would have saved me from buying many pairs of jammies.  It is so warm here – that really they can wear shorts to bed until close to December. I know this isn’t super genius or anything, but I thought I would quickly share it, just in case there are a few other mommies out there that always run into this problem.

To do it I just took a pair of the longer shorts from one of his other pair of jammies.



Then when I went to cut I just added an extra 1/2″ to the length, so that I had some fabric to fold under.


Then I turned them inside out and folded the fabric over about 1/2″ or so.


To make sure they’d were going to be the same length I fold the shorts in half – this way I could line them up more.  If needed fold one of the sides more, etc.


Then I just threw them on my machine and sewed around the edges.  I looked for a stitch that was similar to the one they had used. 



Viola!  Finished product!  Took me a whole 10 minutes too!
