Patches new trousers ready for Autumn

Starting to make him some trousers to go over his nappies. Found a great pattern and adjust the sizing to fit his little cloth bum!

Trousers made out of baby cord! I call them his little golfer pants!!

Oh, those are WONDERFUL!! I love them! Where did you get that material?
Hubbie and i have been meaning to buy a sewing machine since last Christmas, and learn to sew...just not got round to it and I also tend to think it's actually quite expensive getting material. Or is it easy to pick up cut-offs and charity shop material?

Hi

I used the Snazzy Pants pattern from Tie Dye Diva. I size up one size (3T) and cut the length and elastic to Patrick's correct size (2T). He is only 21 months but tried sizing up to 2T and they were a bit tight over his nappy so went up to 3T.

@louellen I got this material from Celtic Fusion Fabric's online. This baby cord is quite expensive, but I don't mind that as they fit Patrick really well over a cloth nappy. In total they only cost around £10 to make which is comparative to buying in a shop, but they are different and quirky which is what I like.

Hubby bought my sewing machine and overlocker for birthday pressie's over the last few years. He wanted something made to start with so I got a sewing machine!
