How to Make Adorable Family Pajamas for Cheap: Free SVG file!

Make adorable matching family Christmas pajamas with these FREE bear SVG files.

She wants matching Christmas PJs like those cute ones on Zulily.  The rest of the family rolls their eyes at the thought.  What to do??

Tell them if they want those coveted items on their Christmas lists, they will make Mama bear happy.  They will put on the homemade pajamas and smile at the camera…LOL!

That’s about how things go in my house.  As my kids get older, it’s getting harder to keep the tradition of wearing matching pajamas Christmas morning.  But I still love it and will torture them as long as I can!

When they were younger, it was easy to find cheap pajamas at Children’s Place or Old Navy in their sizes.  Now, the sizes are all over the place and finding inexpensive PJs isn’t easy.

Enter my beloved Cricut.  Whipping up some matching Cricut family pajamas is easy and quick.  I’ve even made it one step easier for you… you don’t even need to design anything.  I have the whole family covered with these bear SVG free files.

Last year I made a set of matching Christmas pajamas with monogrammed antlers.  You can grab that FREE Christmas SVG file here.

This year I’m a little in love with buffalo check plaid so of course, I had to make some new pajama shirts.  I had fabric leftover from my easy pillow inserts and buffalo plaid stockings that I made, so I didn’t even need to buy more.  Win-Win!

3 Easy Ways to Use the Bear SVG files

  • Use fabric for the bear in the bear family pajamas.  I decided to cut the bear out of flannel fabric and apply it to the shirt with heat and bond.  All the wording is cut out of black siser easyweed heat transfer vinyl.

Cutting Bonded Fabric with the Cricut

I used the same method for making personalized towels as I did for applying the bear.  Make sure to hop on over to that post for more detailed instructions.

I cut a piece large enough for the bear of both the flannel and heat bond.

Follow the directions on the packaging to adhere the heat and bond to the fabric with an iron or heat press.

Cut the bonded fabric with your Cricut according to its dropdown settings.

If there are any strands just cut them off.  Peel paper off back.

I heat pressed the HTV Mama Bear wording on first.  If you need full details on operating a heat press, check out my heat press tutorial here. 

Then I pressed the fabric bear down, placed a  Teflon sheet over all of it and pressed it again.

You’re all done!  Repeat for all the shirts to get a full set of Mama bear family pajamas.

You Should Know This

I absolutely love the look of the plaid flannel bear.  However, truth be told, I don’t have the best of luck with fabric appliques staying on through a lot of washings.  Turning it inside out and washing it in cold water will definitely help.

If some of the edges start coming up, you can sew all the way around it as I did with my personalized towels.  (Heat and Bond does recommend using Light Hold if you are going to be sewing it though).  Or you can apply a little unique stitch under the edges.

If mine falls off too quickly, I’ll probably just add another one or apply a patterned HTV instead.  No biggie!
