Sewing Flannel

Clip to ScrapBook #1

It is January and one of my goals is to sew through my fabric collection.
Needless to say I have a few quilts to finish.
I also plan to make a couple more rag quilts.
But I will still have quite a bit of cozy cotton flannel as well as some plaid flannel left over.

I think I want to make some pj pants.
Do you have a favourite pattern you could recommend?
The sewing will be easy no matter what pattern I use, but I am wondering about a good width for the legs.
I am not even sure how wide pj legs are these days.

I also have a few metres of buffalo plaid.
I think I will make a couple pillow covers with moose or snowflake appliques.
I also wondered about a couple of flannel buffalo plaid lined jackets. I guess the outer layer could be nylon, corduroy or cotton.
Think anyone would want something like that?
Just because I can sew it doesn't mean I should.

I haven't made these but found a couple of blog posts.

This one likes unisex/multi-sized Simplicity 1520.

This post offers a free printable XXS-XXL women's pattern.

Happy sewing!

I have been seeing ads on some of my PT pages that show tops with buffalo plaid collars (cowl necks) and/ or side panels with the rest of the top a sort of sweatshirt gray. Maybe you could create something like that!

Oh!
A buffalo plaid cowl would be perfect.
Thanks.
