I found this Debbie Mumm fleece remnant at my local fabric store and turned it into warm pants for my little girls using some existing pants as patterns:
I cut Emma’s out on the fold so that I had one less seam to sew (the outer leg seam) and to keep more of the pattern intact (I wasn’t trying to match the pattern along seam lines).
I have a few more remnants I bought on the same shopping trip that I plan to do the same thing with. I’ll make some for Johnny, too, out of less girly fabric. =)

Still love these. Makes me wish I had used the fleece I bought to make these for my girls!! Well, the winter isn’t over yet, is it? (I wish it was :)

They look so soft and pretty! I’d love to have a go at making a little boys pair for sunnyboy.

I did the same thing for Emily and her doll with some remnant flannel once. I know she would love fleece pants too! Great idea!

I’ve made pants like this before. I don’t know how to read a pattern, so I just use the pants as a guide to make new ones. I’ll have to try out fleece!
So cute – I love those matching pants.

That picture of Lily and Emma is absolutely adorable! Thank you for adding an extra big smile to my day! I love the print on the fleece, too–incredibly cute on your little girls!
Those look so comfy! Depending on the fleece they would make great diaper covers! =)
Cute! One of these days I have to try sewing a piece of clothing. I’m such a wimp. I did make a taitian style dress once for a halloween costume, but I just took a piece of fabric I had bought in tahiti and added velcro closures… that’s about as complicated as my clothing sewing has gotten. ;)
