The babies don’t really NEED any more clothes, but it’s kind of addicting making cute new things for them.
I saw this orange fabric on the clearance stack at Craft Warehouse ($2.50/ yd!) and couldn’t pass up getting a yard of it.
I 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.
I might make myself some orange shorts, too… why not?
I used metallic orange thread, which adds just a little something, and velcro closure for easy on and off.
I 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! 🙂
How about some more pictures of my cute Jude and his cute new orange shorts?
And, while we’re at it- here’s what he ACTUALLY thought about his crazy mom taking pictures at bedtime.
