Just to give a give peek at how simple it is to make a pattern – think back to elementary school when your teacher asked you to lay down on long white butcher paper and she drew an outline of your body in black ink marker. Later on, your teacher gave you the outline and told you to draw your clothes and such. The same principle is used to make the pattern for these pajamas. Lay the blanket flat on the ground, lay upon it and have a friend use a contrasting color marker to loosely outline your body.
