Basic pocket pants
As seems to be my habit when we're due to go away, I've been squeezing in lots of sewing projects. You know the ones: "the kids don't have enough warm clothes... I know, I'll make some!" - crazy stuff like that, that keeps me up til all hours of the night.
Here's one of them - 'basic pocket pants' for my little boy, made from a pattern in the wonderful "Growing up sew liberated" book by Meg McElwee.
These pants are just good everyday play pants, something to pull on and go. I'm hoping they'll be useful on our little trip away. And I'm also hoping to get lots of use from my Minoru jacket which I've only been able to wear once because the weather had been too warm.
In my last minute frenzy I decided that I couldn't get a zip up hoodie made for my boy :-(. so I bought a cheapie and put this little car motif on the front. Hopefully he'll wear it!
I'll be back next week with some of my other crazy late night pre-holiday sewing. Til then, have a lovely week!
