Pajama Flannel Pants with Pockets Sew-Along

Winter is here and snow is on the ground. This means lounging around in a comfortable pair of flannel pants.

I don’t know about you, but I carry my cell phone around with me everywhere I go. This means I need pockets. This was the inspiration for this sew along as I recently upgraded my cell phone and it is much larger than my previous one. This resulted in my cell phone falling out of my pocket when I sat down. Therefore, I had to increase the pocket size in this version of my flannel pants.

If you have a pattern that doesn’t include a cell phone pocket then don’t worry they are easy to add.

Then simply draw your pocket out using the technique in the diagram below. Then follow along with me in the video as I show you every step on how to sew them onto your pants.


Use the Bottom Line Marker to increase or decrease your pocket size based on your phone size.
