I have been on a bit of a sewing hiatus since the beginning of school, but am hoping I am now getting back into the swing of things!
This is a custom order I made for a friend -- a pile of note totes!
These little guys hold 3 x 5 pads of paper...
Just the right size for notes or shopping lists, with spots to hold coupons!!!
And yesterday I finally got started on more pants for Aiden!
No more flood pants for him...
This material I picked up at Fabricland, in the remnant bin when they had a half off sale.
I think I paid $2.25 for a yard of this super soft (almost like a flannel) super adorable camo print!
I used a pants pattern from the new Sewing for Boys book, which I absolutely love!
Since they were camo pants, I had to add a couple cargo pockets for lots of little boy storage...
and a little taggie because I love tags :o)
Cuffed bottoms for growth spurts... simply undo the stitches and voila! Added length!
Another tag added to show which side of the pants is the back... I didn't feel like adding a faux zipper fly.
Double stitched all the seam allowances down for added durability and softness inside.
Aiden, you like your new pants?
Love them Mom!!!
Now can I have a mento for each of my pockets???
