something small....

Great Yarmouth, ...






always running out of clothes for the grandson (only because his mum forgets to bring enough), I’ve decided to try and make some trousers myself. What a fiddly job, those small sizes but I got there in the end. Used a bermuda shorts pattern which I lengthened and they fit well and seem to be comfy so I might do some more.

    Cute pants on him ! I agree, little stuff takes more work sometimes. I just made a couple of jackets, they took four times the amount of time I estimated!!!! I haven’t sewn for 14 days now, I am getting antsy!!!

      hahaha, 14 days without my sewing machine, I’d be more than antsy :-))
      it’s amazing, isn’t it, how those little projects take up so much more time? thanks for your comment x

      hihihi, yes, he is cute. He is my little sunshine :-) The pants were a lot easier to make than I thought, for those I chose a cotton camouflage that was on sale in my local shop. I have found some dark denim in my stash that will be used for another pair, now I’ve tested the pattern :-)) thanks

    These are fabulous and look so cute on him. I have 3 grandaughters and I used to sew for them but time is against me now. I’m either working or babysitting Lol my sewing is a big stress reliever for me Lol x

      thank you Mary! Yes, it can be a big stress reliever although sometimes it has the opposite effect on me. When I haven’t been able to do something for a few days, I get “withdrawal” symptoms and get cranky:-))
      thanks for the tip about pound world, must admit I haven’t looked in a pound shop for greaseproof paper, but will do asap :-)) x

      thank you. Even though it was a bit unusual doing something that small, it was a lot of fun, so you might enjoy it too :-))
