In this class students will make a pair of elastic waist pyjama pants. The pants are a simple design with a drawstring waist and slightly wide legs. The PJ pants are unisex. 

School Holiday classes are designed for 10 years and up. There is a maximum of six children in classes. Children wearing PJ pants that they have made themselves are known to go to bed on time without argument.*

*Obviously there is no proof of this claim.  Your child will most likely require a glass of water, a cuddle, tucking in, a trip to the bathroom and more before they will go to bed on your third or fourth request.

This class is only offered during the School holidays.

Grace and her friend had a fantastic time sewing, she couldn't wait to put her PJ's pants on. I may even sign myself up for a class and learn how to sew. Thank you!
