What to do

1. Cut your paper into a long strip.

2. Fold the paper accordion-style to make a series of rectangles. Make the folds as even as possible. The rectangles should be the size you want each pair of pyjamas to be.

3. On the top rectangle, draw the outline of a pair of pyjamas. Make sure the arms go all the way to the edge.
