Orange shorts

The babies don’t really NEED any more clothes, but it’s kind of addicting making cute new things for them. 

ImageI saw this orange fabric on the clearance stack at Craft Warehouse ($2.50/ yd!) and couldn’t pass up getting a yard of it. 

ImageI think it makes perfectly cute little kid shorts.  I believe I will make a pair for the other two boys, too.  For Liam’s, I’ll be sure to add some pockets. 

ImageI might make myself some orange shorts, too… why not? 

ImageI used metallic orange thread, which adds just a little something, and velcro closure for easy on and off. 

ImageI used a self-drafted pattern, with flat front and working fly.  The velcro could easily be changed to a button… you could add a zipper… pockets… make them longer to be pants or shorter to be, well… shorter.  Very versatile, I tell you! 🙂

ImageHow about some more pictures of my cute Jude and his cute new orange shorts?

ImageImageAnd, while we’re at it- here’s what he ACTUALLY thought about his crazy mom taking pictures at bedtime.
