Hi.

Thanks for visiting. This space of the internet encourages me to use my creativity. If it also helps another creature in some way, that's pretty amazing to me. 

Babies Need Pants

Babies Need Pants

Today, I accomplished something new. I started and finished a project in a day, which included a trip to the fabric store. I found a pattern online from Brindille & Twig and printed it out at home. I have been a bit apprehensive about this method in past, because I imagined it would be a nightmare getting everything printed and aligned correctly. Turns out, it was no biggie. The pattern was for a tiny human though, so it might be trickier for adult sized clothes.

Here’s a tip when cutting out the pattern: highlight your lines first. This was especially helpful in my case because the printer is low on ink so all of the colours looked similar. I used to think this step seemed overboard, but it’s quick and super helpful. 

This pattern encouraged me to use my serger. I’m a bit scared of my serger, but with each use I grow a bit more confident. It was fun to switch between the machines for this project. I felt so professional, that is, until I sewed the pocket over onto itself and had to pick out the error.

 

It's August though.

The project taught me about pockets of this style, cuffs, and adding an elastic waist. I think the design is SUPER cute, but I messed up this one in too many places to be able to gift to any pant-less babies just yet. I feel I can make this pattern quickly on a second go around, so I intend to do so soon! 

I thought I would include costs in these posts in case anyone is interested! I think this will make 3-4 pairs of pants.

Pattern: $7.50 (USD) 
Fabric & elastic: $29 (CAD)
