Back on the sewing machine again. Yay!
I bought this small woven throw rug / table cloth at an op shop for 50 cents when we still lived in Melbourne, so it must have been more than a year ago. I wanted to make some little pants for little A, who back then was the baby of the family. I finally did it today and they are so cute on him. I'm very happy with the results.
Here's what I started off with, the table cloth is about 1m square, or a little less. I also used an old pair of jeans.
I wanted to use the woven tablecloth for the front and the jeans for the back of a pair of little people pants.
As I decided to keep the fringe for the bottom of the pants, I chose to keep the denim raw on the bottom edge as well, and used a pin to pull out some threads and create a little fringe or frayed look as shown here.
I added a little pocket to the back.
And here are the pants, with the 3 year old model who refuses to stand still and only does 'funny' faces.
