Easy to sew, easy to give beginners pajama pant kit with free downloadable directions file

My niece is eight and when she asked her mom recently for a sewing kit, my sister in law was at a loss. She wasn't quite sure something like that existed or really what she was looking for, so when I got the questioning text, I messaged back "I got this!".
I ended up taking one of my readers favorite tutorials and creating a pajama pants kit that had pre-cut materials inside to make a beginners sewing project. 

I'm sharing with you the file, so that you can create a sewing kit for some of the beginner seamstresses that are in your life.
You can download the file here. I've added color pictures so that the directions are easy to follow and can be completed without a seam ripper {fingers crossed}.

All you need to do is to select the fabrics {you will need 7/8 yard for the pants, 1/8 yard for the trim for a size 10 and under} and purchase the elastic and then simply pre-wash the fabric, iron and cut the pattern pieces out. I used a pair of my daughters pajamas that were in her drawer since my niece and my daughter are about the same size. I also ironed the cuff in half before I cut it to make that step easier.
Print off the directions, and add the pattern pieces to a Ziploc bag that you can package and give as a gift. I know this would be perfect for any child learning how to sew!

Putting together a sewing kit with a pattern ready to sew is a great idea, especially for beginners! I bet your niece loved the kit you made her! :)
