Hey folks, This 'ible for the SEW WARM contest can help others (yes, you can help kids learn!). I work with Newton North High School Greengineers, greengineers.wikispaces.com/, steering the algae to biofuel project. One of their other fabulous projects is recycling plastic bags into reusable totes. The sewing machine that is the grand prize for SEW WARM, will be used for this project. So please vote, for the kids.
This instructable will show you how to make insulated work pants. I used a wrecked pair of carhartts and a wrecked pair of sweats. You are welcome to use new pairs of either, but if you've followed any of my 'ibles, I repurpose lots of old pants and shirts, (apparently, 1 carpenter + 1 biologist = LOTS of torn clothes, who knew) Also, feel free to use any work pants, sweats, fleece, flannel, whatever.
The only tips on pant selection is that the liners should be a bit loose, (not spandex, etc.)
The outside pants should fit you slightly larger than normal (ex. I used a pair of my husbands old work pants which are a full size bigger than I would normally wear, and my old sweats which fit me normally)
