|She is telling me to "Shoo." Seriously. Does it get more two than that?!|
|Can't get enough of it. Any thoughts on more projects I should use it on?|
Wait. Pants. Wasn't I getting back to the pants? I traced a pair of Raina's pants onto the folded fabric, right at the bottom. No hemming! Raina is lanky, and has a pants problem. As in, the don't fit her. Ever. Pants that are the right length literally fall off her bottom, and pants that fir correctly in the waist are capris. So I make her pants. I love the pants I make her, and she tolerates them. :) I sewed the front and back pieces together, inserted an elastic waistband, closed the seam... PANTS! But they were missing something.
When I was little, I remember my mom making (what I remember being) some pretty sweet knee patches for my pants out of iron on bonding material... those patches sold to reinforce knees, elbows, and other parts of clothing that get worn quickly (are there other parts?) Mostly, I remember them being cat patches... which seems weird looking back since my mom is totally not a cat person, but wharever. My point: knee patches. I decided these pants needed some decoration in the knee area. The heart patches are made from heavy-ish red jersey, reclaimed from a red t-shirt that's been in my "do something with this" pile for a while now, and can finally breathe a sigh of relief, knowing it will be loved again.
|Knee patches, on cute pants.|
|PANTS! Displayed lovingly on my kitchen floor, because my camera is dying and that's where the light is best :)|
|Big Sis, princess pants, and the zoo Jeep... and a SMILE!|
