Free Sewing Patterns for Pyjamas

A brand new pair of pyjamas to wear on Christmas eve night is a real treat for kids and grown ups.  Especially when in the morning there’s likely to be photographs, so you’ll want to make sure you have some nice PJ’s on! (make a matching set – that’s next years Christmas card sorted!)

Did you try our pattern for these fun ‘Colour Me’ PJ’s in Issue 20?  You can download it for free here!

We’ve collected our favourite free pyjama patterns from talented sewing bloggers for kids and adults.  Let us know if you’ll be sewing up a pair of PJ’s for yourself, your partner or your kids – they make brilliant presents and you can personalise them with your fabric choices and even embroider initials on.

A few of these patterns are just for Pyjama bottoms.  You can make the bottoms out of a really fun patterned fabric and team them with a plain t-shirt, either bought or using a simple long or short sleeved t-shirt tutorial.  We’ve added a few links to basic T-shirt patterns at the end.

Kids Pyjama Patterns

If you like upcycling you’ll be impressed with this transformation, these little kids pjamas are made entirely from an old top! (the sleeves have turned into the legs).  The tutorial is by Emily of Nap Time Creations – quick pyjamas tutorial


These kids are very pleased with their new PJ’s.  The full button up pyjama pattern and tutorial to make these can be found over at Shwin & Schwin.

Pyjama Tops

As promised, if you’d like to sew up a simple T-shirt style Pyjama top to match your new bottoms why not try one of these free patterns. Pyjama tops are pretty much just t-shirts!  We think plain tops look great with colourful or patterned pyjama bottoms.
