I made some pajama pants from a fitted sheet (from a double-sized mattress, I think).  The nifty part is I didn't have to worry about elastic in the waist because I cut the fabric so that the entire waist used the gathered part of the sheet.

Here's how I started:  I cut an approximation for my fabric, taking advantage of the gathered part of the sheet.

Then I traced an existing pair of pajama pants as a pattern, and I sewed the PJ pants together:

Then I wore them!

Those look so comfy! Love it!

Okay. I think I'm the only one possibly to mess up PJ pants, but if you could, could you please elaborate? I'm a sewing newbie.

Very nice! Great use of the bed sheet, I love it! I'll have to go see if our thrift store has any so I can try this. Smiley

OMG what a great idea!! I have tons of sheets that are just sitting in my linen closet not being used AND I love having lounge pants! Excellent!  Grin

if you pick the right sheet and color, you could make one of those nifty renfair dresses! elastic at the waits with the gathers around the shoulders!
the ideas!
