 After my last blog entry I think I may have inspired myself to actually use one of the craft books and actually make something.Using a pattern from this book(sorry, no idea of its title, its written in Japanese), I traced the pants pattern, and cut two pairs to make reversal pants for Charlie.

 I used flannel (or brushed cotton, or flannelette)fabric from Anna Maria Horner's "folksy flannels" range. To sew the pants I used the instructions from Anna Maria Horner's book, Handmade Beginnings. Her instructions were very easy to follow. The book is full of gorgeous projects and I hope to make a few more things from the book.
 The quality of this photo isn't very good, but it gives you an idea of the finished product.
Unfortunately my darling son, in true two year old fashion, decided he really didn't want to try on  the pants. I didn't want to push it, because I'd like him to wear them one day. Double flannelette means they'll be super warm in winter. Now I just need to knit a cute little vest to match. Watch this space...

  1. Those pants are gorgeous. Your son will look and feel great in them!
    I can totally relate to trying to get a toddler to try on clothes. My Grand Daughter likes to pick up and cuddle the Yo Gabba clothes I make her and then she dramatically throws them on the floor and refuses to try them on!
