Excellent and fun pattern to sew up!
Great for beginners. Instructions are very clear and helpful.
I have made every version of these for my daughter several times. They are so easy and look so nice when they’re done. She loves the boy shorts for cheer practice and the leggings and skirt for school. Crazy easy to understand directions.
Great pattern with so many options. Quick and easy sew with clear instructions. A great staple!
Thanks for the free pattern. They fit my daughter perfectly and were so easy to sew up.
My most used pattern! I love it! My daughter is so skinny and tall, RTW leggings haven’t fit her in years. She chooses to wear the leggings most days because they actually fit perfect!

I cannot count how many pairs of bonny leggings I have made for my daughters! They are so comfortable and come together so quickly! I love the update that was done! I have honestly made my girls bonny leggings instead of doing laundry! Definitely recommend this pattern.

Seriously my favorite go-to pattern. I easily make 15 -20 leggings each year for my girls and this pattern is perfect!
Best pegging I have EVER made! Beautiful fit!!!!
These is my absolute favorite pattern for leggings. The pattern is well-written and very easy to follow! I would highly recommend it to beginning sewers of all ages.

Love these! My daughter has long legs and finding leggings that fit is a chore. These are a quick sew also!
This was one of the first things I ever made. Directions are easy to follow for beginners. Love the pants for everyday and the shorts for dance!

I have made LOTS of these, they are easy to make and look fab. My daughter says they are super comfortable.
I love this pattern and the versatility of it! Need shorts for under a dress? You got it! Want a skirt with shorts attached? Check! Want leggings? Yep! Well written and easy to follow instructions made it a breeze to sew up a skirt with attached shorts for my oldest daughter for picture day.
I love these leggings! They are so fast to put together that I have to add them to all of my girls outfits and they always end up with a great fit!
Best free pattern ever. I love being able to make my girls leggings that actually fit. Tons of options too.

Love the Bonny leggings! They’re quick and easy. The fit is fantastic!
Awesome example of a M4M knockout pattern! Super easy and clear instructions.
(Hem them flat when making tiny ones!)
I absolutely love this pattern! It was one of my first purchases from m4m. The sizes are great! It’s a quick sew with well written instructions. 10/10 would reccomend to anyone! Even newbies!

The Bonny leggings pattern is the only pattern I now use for my girls! They wear leggings just about every day under their dresses – the full length is perfect for fall/winter, and the shorties length is perfect for the warmer summer months! Seriously a staple piece for any little girls’ wardrobe. Get the pattern. You will not be disappointed and will want to sew up a million pairs – and you certainly can in no time! Beginner friendly pattern as well.
These are such an easy sew! Great for beginners too.

These leggings are soooo perfect! I love that I can make custom leggings for my kiddos! I 100% recommend trying this pattern!
Laura Wong –
Super easy sew, perfect for my boy’s PJ pants! Runs a bit small based on measurements though.

I LOVE this pattern. My niece is still okay with matching me, so we have plenty of these with the P4P adult ones as well! Thank you for offering them for us!
The best leggings! Easy to sew, and a great fit every time.
These are my go to pattern for leggings. I’ve been using it for the last 3 years. Perfect to wear underdress or with tunics or tops.
Fantastic, easy to read instructions and even easier to follow. Best leggings ever.

This pattern is my most used pattern & I love all the options. I also love that it’s so quick to whip up too!

We love this pattern. My child will only wear “stretchy pants” as she calls it now. So having a pattern that fits right is important. We love it so much !!
This is my go to pattern for sewing leggings for my granddaughters, I’ve sewn dozens of these.
One of the easiest patterns to follow from print to completion! Not only is it quick, cute, and easy, but there are lots of ways to modify this pattern with shortie, Capri, and ruffle options!

This was a freebie, but I would happily have paid. Simple and easy pattern that I’d recommend for beginners. Once you’ve made a couple of pairs, you’ll be confident enough to alter them to suit your child. Add little bows to the hems, or colour block, or a ruffle hem, or add lace to the bottom hem for a ‘witches britches’ look. Try the hacks listed on the site.
The instructions are easy to follow, and there is heaps of helpful advice online. Check out the Facebook pages listed on this site. Check out the Instagram sites. Ask the pattern maker!
Don’t forget the pattern is in inches! Yes, it says this a few times on the website and also in the instructions. But… Had a friend make a pair up and couldn’t figure out why they were so big on her daughter! D’Oh! Easy fix. Most tape measures have cms on one side and inches on the other. Use a conversion app. Ask your gran. Just don’t forget- inches!
Make sure you measure your child! And measure them again in a few months when you make a new pair. I cannot stress this enough, no matter where the pattern is from. My child is a size 8-10 from shops here in Australia. I cut her a 5-6 from this pattern and it’s perfect. Don’t assume, measure! If you plan to do a lot of sewing, get into the habit. You won’t regret it.
The pattern works perfectly for projector cutting. I use the A0 by default, but the projector specific file… perfection ☺️
I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough, and I suggest supporting the creator by buying a few patterns to go with your new leggings… they’re all easy peasy lemon squeezy
