So this last batch of lounge pants I made for my son appear to be the last that I will get away with just one yard.  I barely squeezed them out but they do fit him. 

Action shot


the other two pair


After a hectic morning of school evals for my son and the dogs almost tearing apart the gas man and almost getting stabbed, yeah bad day, instead of breaking out the cheesecake, I broke out the scraps lol.  I made this little apron skirt for my daughter.

I sympathize with you! I used to be able to get away with using remnants for my children's clothes, but alas, they just keep getting taller...
  The pants are cute though! I like the moose fabric.
Your daughter is adorable and I love the skirt.  I have been wanting to make something like that for my little ham, you have inspired me to do it.  Cheesy

Wasn't that skirt a hundred times more satisfying than cheesecake? It's ADORABLE! 

The pants are great too.
