I know it’s so fun to make girly stuff, but I don’t want to leave my boys out. I have been meaning to try out MADE’s Pants Tutorial for a while now. While wandering through JoAnn’s, I spotted some festive fabric and knew it’d be perfect for some toddler shorts. I only needed 1/2 yard, so these shorts were about $3 – score.
Let me tell you – - the fit of these pants is amazing!! This will definitely be a repeat pattern. Simple to use, easy to assemble, and a great cut. That Dana knows what she’s doing!
Also, on the picture above, do you see that double-stitched hem and pocket – - I used a double needle that came with a machine I bought a garage sale years and years ago. I never knew how to thread 2 threads into a machine until I saw the tutorial at Make It and Love It where she just rand the 2 threads through the machine at once – who knew! Now I’ve entered a whole new world of double-stitching goodness!
The shorts are super cute, but I think the model’s even cuter - -
He was having such a fun time taking pictures – love that. In fact, he LOVES his new shorts. He has a thing for flags (we shout “flag” while driving – kind of like the old slug bug game) AND he loves pockets, so the shorts are a win-win – - he shouted with glee when I showed them to him and he had to put them on right then.
Oh, and one more thing – - MADE and Made by Rae are putting on a mini Celebrate the Boy Series – I’ll be watching it closely….(flicker pool for it HERE)
