Another Foray into Clothes

This week I took another step into clothes sewing and made 2 pairs of shorts for boys!  I was inspired by Kristy from Hopeful Threads who is gathering Little Boys Shorts to send to Cambodia.

Here are the shorts I made:

Size 18 Month Shorts

Size 12 Month Shorts

I used this fabulous tutorial AND pattern from Caila-Made. I am really happy with how they turned out. There are a couple of itty bitty puckers but overall, for my first 2 pairs, I’m pleased with them. Now I just have to explain to Anne why her Cars fabric is gone…

Today we are off to ride Thomas the Train with Anne’s Auntie Lisa and her cousins. We have been planning this since March and we are all very excited! Pictures next week!

    These are so amazing! I’m so sorry I didn’t comment before now! I truly love these and I know my boys would, too. (You can never go wrong with Cars fabric). I am so motivated to go make my own shorts for such a good cause. Thanks so much for linking to my tutorial, Melissa!!
