Seven pairs for the little guy who grows so quickly. Three very cute flannels and the rest cotton knits. Some with the Faux Cuff, others just hemmed on the sweet Singer. No bought pattern, just traced from some existing pants. I even made the elastic waist roomy for comfortable sleeping. I love this kind of mindless sewing. No pockets or zips. The final step of putting the elastic in takes longer than sewing the pants together.
I had to go back to Spotlight today to buy some more of that bicycle flannel. I bought the last 3.5 metres (it was on sale)!
With all this pants sewing I realised that I can no longer make a pair of pants for the little guy with just a half metre of fabric. A lot of the knits I buy online come in half metre increments (like that yellow Stella above), so there will be extra expense and a bit of wastage. Darn growth! I guess there will be a stage when it's going to be really costly to buy more expensive fabrics for the boys. No more cheap half metre cuts or remnant knits for me. I might have to go to a store, but not Spotlight as they have zero printed cotton knit fabric at the moment. Nor have they for more than a year. Lucky I have some stashed.
And now for something smelly.
Lavender sachets. Or mini throwing pillows if you ask the kids. They smell so nice. Only one ended up in the linen cupboard, the kids claimed the others for their drawers. I need to find somewhere that sells dried lavender by the giant bagful, as it's so nice to sleep on sheets scented with lavender. Sweet dreams!
