After realizing that my son has suddenly had a growth spurt and is showing off a bit of ankle in all his pajama and "lounge" pants, I decided to finally follow some of those online tutorials I have seen for making your own lounge pants by tracing a pair that fits.
I found a good fitting pair waist wise in his dresser, added a bit of length, made a pattern, and set to sewing. I had found the dinosaur waffle knit and the turtle/animal fleece on the super duper clearance rack, so each pair cost me about $2.
The Munchkin has decided that this is the back of his pants (thank goodness - I did not intentionally place any animals anywhere - honest) - the front legs have crabs on the knees (for Gramma)
Of course I could not sew just for the Munchkin, so the butterfly pants were my "fitting experiment" and then when figured out that I had the right measurements, I cut into my bee fabric. Those are lacking only the elastic.
These are fun, easy and addicting -and I know there is green turtle fabric just waiting at my local JoAnn's for my next coupon or the next sale.
Is that the bee fabric you are sharing with me?! Buzz, buzz!
Love the pants! THey are very addicting! I get to show mine off this weekend... at JEN'S!!! :D
