Got a little sewing crazy last night and started this project around 11pm. After browsing the internet I finally found a tutorial that was comprehensive enough for this novice.
A little long. But that's because I used the wrong set of pants to cut the pattern from. Uhg.
He didn't seem to mind, though.
I tried to be creative and chose a contrasting thread.
Practice, practice, practice. Although, I must say that this was one of my funnest projects to date. Why? Because from start to finish it was all me. I traced his pants, cut the pattern out of old Christmas wrapping paper, picked my practice fabric, chose the thread. I did it all on my own. Felt kinda good to be brave. Two hours and 1am later....I was done. And my poor son will never know that I was measuring his little waist while he slept. Yes, I'm such a desperate seamstress.
