create (a life): the process of making

By freshlyplanted - 7:47 AM

Once upon a time I saw the "quick change trousers" from Anna Maria's Handmade Beginnings in this blog post, here, and a seed was planted. Are you familiar with the "Oh, someday I want to make that" seed? I've been collecting lots of them lately, but actually planting them and sowing a harvest is sometimes another story (smile). Anyways, so I loved the trousers and was talking to my friend Holly about wanting to make them for Billy when she said she had the perfect fabric. (With Robots, eek!) But first I decided I needed to dive in and take the time to try the pattern first. 

Since Cory had taken the kids so I could have some Mama time, I decided to have a little Mama beverage as well. I don't usually take the time to do a trial run first, and I was happy I did. There were several little mistakes, like this:

They were corrected easily with a little seam ripping and re-sewing, but no robots were injured in the process (ha!). I'll share the final pants tomorrow, they're pretty fun and big enough that our little man- who is currently growing out of everything- will be able to grow into them. That'll be a nice change!
