    Coming up on my to-do list is a new pair of pajamas for my 9-year-old son. So far I’ve made things like this in flannel and quilting cottons, but I’m wondering about other options. Sigh…he’s getting awfully grown up! Any recommended fabrics for solids, stripes…other thoughts? I’d like to find something comfortable and somewhat fun. Maybe I could use a fun quilting cotton for the trim. Suggestions? Thanks!

    I have the Sarah Jane Children at Play line for all my boys, oldest is almost 10. Ther is fun prints and striped prints. SHe has the flannel and cotton fabrics of all the prints too.

    Thank you! I just looked at the Children at Play line — that’s a great idea. Do you have any thoughts about solids I could mix with these? The only solids I’ve used are the kona cottons from Joann, and I’d like something a little softer.

    Fabric.com has the Alexander Henry mustache fabric. There seams to be a ton of super hero and Star Wars quilting fabric out there at the moment.

    I would use a soft cotton shirting, in plaids or pinstripes or maybe herringbone, just like mens pajamas would be. I think it would be more comfortable than quilting cotton. The Sarah Jane stuff isnwonderfullynillustrated, but I find Michal Miller pretty stiff. I know I wouldn’t enjoy sleeping in it. I haven’t had a chance to feel the flannel from her line. Moda makes a buttery soft flannel, but I don’t know of any boyish prints. I would search for men’s shirting at gorgeous fabrics, fabric.com, mood or your local tailoring shop, if you happen to have one.

    I’ve been looking at these for my boys, 5 and 7: http://www.fabric.com/SearchResults2.aspx?Source=Header&SearchText=Plaid&CategoryID=1d5f47dc-9991-4088-93f3-26a376046a5e. I’m only hesitating because they might prefer cozy flannel in the cold months.
