Sewing: Jeans

I’ve made the little one some jeans. They are so gorgeous but too big. It will probably only take about 2 months for him to grow into them but I am impatient because I'm so happy with how good they look. I’ve cut out another pair of pants that I’ll size down a little so that he can wear them now.

I’ve just realised that I don’t have a photo of the finished front. Here is one in progress. I did faux pockets on the front, just stitched them on.

Well we are back from our quick holiday up north and I have a new big stash of fabric from Mum and her friends and I have had little time to even unpack the bag let alone do any real sewing. I’ve darned holes and reattached buttons but I’ve done very little else. I’ve haven’t even been blogging much, the laptop has been languishing in the kitchen as I’ve been knitting, by hand, to finish a project that I started at least a year ago.

The beautiful spring weather has deserted us and it is miserable and cold again so I think that is why I have been living on the couch with my knitting when I get any spare time in the evening.

During brief moments of sunshine we managed to get to Floriade twice this year so here are some beautiful spring flowers that I have been enjoying on my screensaver.
