Because everyone needs giraffe pants…

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!

    Pretty commendable, too. Don’t think I could comfortably sew without a pattern! Giraffes are my favorite!

    Yes…definitely a whole lot of cuteness!! Have a wonderful weekend!! Happy sewing!!

  3. I’ll make a quilt without a pattern, but not clothes!! It’s been too many years since I have made clothing – like 30 years!! The pants are almost as adorable as she is!! It has turned cold up here in my little piece of the PNW – snow on Wednesday and I love it!!

  4. She is cute!! And so are the pants. I’m amazed that you were made them without a pattern.

    You can really see a difference in her face, too, not just height. Her face is much more mature than last year. Wow, those are such cute pants, and yes, everyone needs them! Or tiger pants. Tiger pants work, too. 😉 You’ve come a long way in your clothing construction in a year!
