I made a pair of play pants for ds after not being able to find anything plain enough or cheap enough for the wear and tear my boy puts on his play clothes. I used this tutorial ( http://www.rookiemoms.com/make-some-easy-kids-pants/ ) which I think I got from a post here, and a pair of his pajama bottoms for a template. I cut up an old pair of pajama bottoms that my hubby passed to me, that I passed to my 'recycle drawer'. Also, they took next to no time at all to make. They're lightweight and should be great for playing outside! And they fit nicely over his cloth diaper butt. They're slightly big, but hopefully will last him a little longer. The only thing else is I want to reinforce the knees, I think I'll just sew on some patches from an old sweatshirt or something. I can't wait to make him more!

They look great!  I'm always so amazed at how fast kids grow out of pants.  Its good to be able to sew up well fitting pants and not have to rely on the stores, either stupidly expensive retail or the grab bag at the thrift stores.

I think it's a good idea to make things slightly large - kids grow so fast.  I've a stash of old clothes that I've kept planning to make into something else (whether I actually get that far is another matter...)

Thanks everyone! Sorry I've been on vacation so didn't see your replies earlier. After using these for over a week, I have to say they may be my favorite pants for him (for play). I have several more old pants that will soon be new pants for him!

great skill= pant making. I really think I paid for my sewing machine making pants. Handy hint do the knee patch before you sew up

magic happens

How is his cloth diaper but so small??? My daughters is huge, but maybe it is because I use AIO's.
