I have made some. They are VERY roomy Smiley

I bought a set of bandana patterns off ebay. The sellers name is parksbird. It was well worth the $17 for her patterns plus you get any new patterns she creates.

Pants
You will need two 27-inch red bandannas and 24 inches of 1/2-inch-wide cotton twill tape.
1. Lay bandannas on top of each other right sides facing. Bandannas are slightly rectangular, pin them together along long sides. Fold bandannas in half lengthwise, aligning pinned sides. Create arc for crotch as follows (left): Starting from top corner, measure 8 inches down one pinned edge; mark this spot. Measure 1+1/2 inches in from spot; make an X. Measure 2 inches in from top corner; make an X. Draw a line from X to X and out to pinned side, rounding off as shown. Cut along curved line (right).
2. Unfold bandannas. Sew bandannas together along both crotches; stitch again to reinforce. Notch curves. Trim seams to 1/2 inch.
3. Open out bandannas and shift so crotches are centered and aligned. Sew together along each inside seam. Trim seam allowances.
4. To create casing for drawstring, fold waistband down 1+1/2 inches. Sew parallel to fold, making a 1-inch channel. Turn pants right side out; open front seam to create a small hole through which to thread twill tape. Using safety pin, thread twill tape through casing; beginning and ending at this hole.

27" bandanas? Do they come in different sizes, my thighs are most definitely larger than 27" around.

Hee! That's so cute--these are pants for little children, silly! Although I would actually kind of love to wear every single thing that we make for our kids on this site. Is sewing for kids so totally wish fulfillment, or what?

Just wanted to jump in and say I made these pants for my daughter a year ago and I love them. They're so adorable, and I've used the pattern to make pants out of other fabric too, not just bandanas.

You could just resize the pattern to make the pants in adult sizes.  And I have seen fabric that looks like bandanas.  I think they are adorable and I'm gonna try it.

I'm sure my children will laugh at me, but they just look sooo comfy.

I'm still the baby of the family though  Wink Although I totally agree with the silly part.

Interestingly enough, I saw an adult woman in shorts that looked like these and then when I was shifting through the new posts with images this one came up. She was REALLY skinny though, so maybe they were made like these...

I will too if I can find that fabric.

You can also go to the dollar store.. or wait until bandannas are on sale at michael's for $1 each (which they are at least once a month) and buy all sorts of colors and sew them together like patchwork..  THen cut the pattern for an adult size..  I like to pattern my drawstring pants after a pair of scrubs.. then they are super comfy and roomy...
