how i spent wednesday and thursday.....Pants-a-palooza

i made pants. lots of pants.



i made fred a pair of "tool time pants" from the grandma mae stash and the elastic i used for all of these came from walmart clearance.....all of it for under $2.00....and ihave enough left for another pair of pants for either kid.

i fixed up the elastic that i had put in incorrectly in his "birthday jammies"...it was too big so i tightened it up a bit....the fabric is vintage-y cowboys on horseback. fred LOVES "coreseys".....

then i made both kiddies a pair of "animal" pants, with more fabric from the grandma mae stash....bella is in quite the "ammm-ull" stage and so i thought this would be cute....

i found, a couple months ago, at goodwill, a bit of pink flannel with stars on it, that seemed as though someone had mended it along the edges to make a baby blanket or something. i had sewn bella a little smock jama top and pants with it, but hadn't done the waistband....(waistbands are the new bobbin thread grrrrr....) then, last week, i found the blue flannel version for fred. score! both panels were 99 cents each....

this is the BEFORE picture...i also finished my mending (that had been in a pile for MONTHS omg)...and i have some blue corduroy experiments in the making....
