This week I made Anne a pair of giraffe pants. You may remember her giraffe hoodie I made last year.
Well, this weekend we were going through her pants drawer looking for sweats, only to discover that none of her pairs fit anymore. Not surprising since she has grown about 4″ from last winter. Happily I had just barely enough giraffe fabric left over to make her a lovely pair of pants!
I made my own pattern using a pair of her jeans and I serged them together on the Pfaff serger that I never use. Then I hemmed them and put in the waistband on my Janome 15000. I love that I’ve gotten to the point in my sewing where I am quite content to sew without patterns. It’s a nice morale booster for this lady!
So here is the first of my Christmas sewing, these are an early present to her so she doesn’t freeze during our Pacific Northwest winter.
Happy Holiday Sewing!
