One for the boys

I hear many mum's of boys say there is a lack of good 'boy' clothing around and so decided to make some pants for my little Godson, Oliver.

His mum is a very kind friend and neighbour and I wanted to do something for her as she's helped me out with the girls on a number of occasions.

While not strictly for her, I knew she would appreciate some pants because she is always after something original for her little man.


I used the same Burda pattern 9717 - that I use for all the girls pants and PJ's and the patches are an idea I've seen a few places, including recently on Xiola's blog.

The guitar fabric is good old Michael Miller I got from the lovely girls at The Humming Mini shop.

The cord looks lighter than it is in the first pic - it's a lovely deep chocolate brown wide wale cord from Spotlight.

It was nice to do some boy sewing for a change, and to sew something quite small again.

I'm sure he'll love them - they're very cute. The patches are a nice personal touch, aren't they.
