Our poor little girl doesn't fit into one pair of her pants. She has a closet full of dresses and not one pair of pants that aren't scandalous. A few days ago I made her some sweet reversible pants from Anna Maria Horners Book, Handmade Beginnings. I'll admit our little girl is like the shoemakers kid everyone, but her, has something made by me but her. For that reason I have promised myself that she and our home will be the benefactors of handmade goodness from now until Christmas prezzie season begins.
The pants were easy and quite quick to make. The only challenge is that my elastic keeps snapping and the pants become a bit too big. The great thing about these are that they are reversible. As a result she has worn them two days in a row and noone has a clue. Tonight I'm going to whip up another two pairs in blue and gray. I'll probably add pink because I can't help myself. I didn't think I would put her in pink all the time but it's just so sweet. I can't resist.
PS: Aren't these photos great? My friend, Andrea, took these and didn't even get annoyed when I tried to 'art direct' her. She successfully ignored my instructions and made it the pictures sweeter.
