autumn pants


Last year I decided that one of our Easter traditions would be to sew a pair of 'autumn pants' for the children to go in their Easter basket each year. You can see the pair I sewed for North last year here.


It took me a long time to get organised, make a pattern for each of them and just get into it, but I finally sat down and cut them out.

I am using thrifted fabric for North's and some fabric I bought from RetroMummy over a year ago for Indigo's. They will each have a simple elastic waist, cuffed bottoms and a pocket on the bottom.

I haven't used the sewing machine since Indigo was born so I can't wait to buckle down and start her up.

But when, oh when? I have just over a week before Easter!

For many more creations of the Easter kind visit the Queen of creativity, Kirsty.
