I wanted to show you guys the boy version of the Toddler Tour pants that I made.
These pants are going to a friend’s new(ish) baby, Chet in Vermont. I hope he digs them as much as I do!
I used a stretch tan corduroy for the main fabric and a bunch of random scraps to create the panels. I made these in a 9-12 month size, so he should be sporting these next Fall! Ahh… Autumn in Vermont. Could there be a better place to leaf peep? I think not.
These are lined with a random cotton print from my stash. For the tag, I used a little piece of ribbon that has vegetable plants on it. I have no idea what vegetable that is down there.
…Looks more like an herb to me…
I was happy to finally use up the Echino fabric that I’ve been sitting on for two years wondering what to do with. Kind of perfect for a little boy. And, it totally goes with my theme here… tour pants… bus bib… tour bus… get it?
So, I cut a basic bib shape (it’s backed with flannel), and finished the raw edges with bias tape that I made from the littlest bit of the Echino that I had left after cutting it up for this bib. And instead of my usual snap closure, I switched it up and used a cute brown button and elastic loop.
You know, keepin’ it fresh around here folks!
And there you have it. A sweet little homemade gift for a baby boy.
If you use my Tour pants tutorial, please let me know- I’d love to see some other versions. They are so fun to put together and personalize for whomever they are for!
Go make some.
