I made another pair of the shorts :) I mean, I couldn’t resist the fabric. HORSES! I love weird prints. It really makes my day when the person I’ve been talking to all of the last 20 minutes suddenly stops mid-sentence and goes, “Oh my! gape Are those small grenades you’ve got on your dress?”
Ha. I’m such a nerd.
I made the back pocket from a scrap that reminded me of grass. And I tried quilting it just for fun (this is my first attempt at any sort of quilting). I also used an old zip that someone had rescued from an old garment destined for the landfill.
More details and a couple more pics on my blog.
1 yard quilting cotton, 1 old zipper, 1 button
