Pants for the boy (kcwc day 5)

I couldn’t end my week of sewing without making something for my boy, Grant.  Nothing, too exciting here- except for the fact that he’s actually getting some homemade clothing love, which is rare in these parts!

I used a the “quick-change trousers” pattern from Handmade Beginnings.  It took a long time to cut the pattern pieces and all the fabric since these pants are reversible.  I had to scrounge for some boyish fabric… I had a lot of this charcoal blue corduroy, and some random clearance fabric.

They definitely fit well, a tad big, but if he can do his normal thing like climbing on tables and chairs- I’m happy.

I’m glad I took part in KCWC this time around… I did my fair share of sewing, but I am definitely out of steam.

Looking forward to several days of beautiful weather while my sewing machine takes a nice long nap.

Thanks for stopping by!

**one more thing… here’s Ellery actually wearing her new sweater.  She kept it on for most of the day at preschool… success!
