Big Stick Jammies

by Dana on March 4, 2013

I bought this plaid flannel fabric at Joanns and it totally reminded me of a Big Stick popsicle.  Or a whole box of them.

In fact when I was in labor with Lucy at the hospital, all I wanted was a Big Stick (pineapple, orange, and cherry popsicle).  And my sweet husband rushed off to 7-Eleven to find one for me.  Aren’t husbands the best?

I sort of wish these were real pants he could wear to school but since Pajama day is coming up, I made him some Big Stick pjs.  His schoolmates will see the pink and orange afterall.

I used the Basic Kid pants tutorial and extended the sides and length of the pattern to make it a little roomier for pjs.  And guess what goes great with simple Pj pants??  A Basic Tee! And also Rae’s Flashback Tee!

“Mom why are my jammies taped to the wall?”
“It’s for my blog”
“What’s a blog?”
That’s for another day.

I always sew a label to the back so he knows which way to put them on.

And this time around I made them especially long so he can wear them next year too.

Then we tried them out on the big bed with our favorite pig pal.  A friend made this cute orange guy a few years ago when we lived in California.  Isn’t he great??  Owen loved tossing him at my lens.

And just for fun, I made a pair of these too.  Cause who doesn’t want Darth and C3PO on their bum?

Have a great Monday!

I have to say, I’m a bit jealous that they let you have popsicles in labor. I had my Gatorade confiscated! I was so mad! I love the pants– they are just adorable, as is Owen!

I have made many a things out of that Star Wars fabric – two different dresses, shorts, an applique shirt, an applique nursing tank. Ya know – a little bit of everything. :)

these are so awesome!! never heard of a big stick, but that popsicle sounds amazing. :)

Those are super cute! I didn’t know what a “big stick” was. I think that’s not a thing here in Canada, maybe?

LOVE these!! What an awesome plaid. I, actually, had never heard of a “big stick” either, haha.

Anyway, love the pants (and the Star Wars ones, COOL!!) and thanks for the sweet mention. :)

This is funny because my son only wears these type of pants to school and every day. They are the same cut and made with funky patterns so I thought of them more as 70′s style rather than pj’s. They were the best bc he couldn’t work buttons or zippers yet too! Its like yoga pants for kids!


8 Bonnie March 4, 2013 at 6:00 pm

Lol. That’s awesome because I made my son the EXACT same pair of Star Wars PJ pants for Christmas (extending your kid’s pants pattern too)!

I am from Chicago and I don’t think I have ever heard of a “big stick”… So it took me a few minutes until you explained it. I thought big stick PJ’s? They look like normal PJ’s to me, ha! They look delish. ;) I love the fabric, it is so fun! And the star wars ones are be-yond! I always see that when I am there, but never knew what to make with it…that solved it for me! I love PJ pants…I would wear them every day all day if it were socially acceptable. :)

I was thinking Teddy Roosevelt… “speak softly and carry a big stick”. Funny.

I’m a grown up and I’d be delighted to wear those star wars pants (around the house)


12 Monica March 4, 2013 at 7:57 pm

Love flannel plaids!! He’s wearing them well, and I like the idea of making them extra looong. The first piece of clothing I made for my little guy were flannel plaid pj pants from your little boy pants pattern :)


13 Jackie March 4, 2013 at 8:47 pm

Love them. Cute Star Wars, too.


14 Carrie March 4, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Cute pj’s! Fun to see your “flaky friend”. :)


15 Emily March 4, 2013 at 10:43 pm

I made my boys the same star wars pj’s. It’s fun to make something out of the fabric they actually want.


16 Jennie March 4, 2013 at 11:31 pm

I must know where that fabric was purchased from! I have 2 Star Wars obsessed boys in my house!


17 Lindsay March 5, 2013 at 1:02 am

Cute! I love the orange!


18 Max March 5, 2013 at 5:03 am

Absolutely love these! I think that Owen & Vince would be best friends in real life ^_^


19 Heather D March 5, 2013 at 9:18 am

Those are so cute!! They look super comfy, too. I want some. =)


20 Lynette March 5, 2013 at 12:17 pm

That fabric is fantastic. And I love those Popsicle too. They are the best!


21 Rebecca March 6, 2013 at 11:27 pm

Geez I want those pants for myself! What a great color!
