I made these from a baby blanket!! No babies around here now but the fabric is sweet so I put it to use!

I blogged about these here http://www.soverydomestic.com/blog/?p=4251 with more pictures but this tute should do!

You'll Need
Pair of elastic or drawstring pants that fit your wee one
2+ yards of cute fabric (how much depends on the size of your wee one)
Pins, sewing machine, stuff like that...

First, fold the pair of pants that fit your wee one in half and lay them over the fabric. Trace around, adding about 1/2″ for the seam all the way around. Now do it again. Lay them right side facing and pin together.

Sew the curves first, down the sides and hem the bottoms.

This is the part that gave me trouble, I had to keep checking and double checking that I wasnt about to sew the front of the pants to the butt, you know? I did it! If I can do it, you can defo do this.

Now for the grommets! You can make an actual drawstring waist or a fake drawstring like I did. Snip a wee hole to pop one side of the grommet through. Then sew up the rest of the waistband and voila! Super simple and way cute!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
