Spring Pants

I am in love. 

With my girl and my hubby, of course.  

But also with this fabric and these pants.


They pants are Anna Maria Horner's Quick Change Trousers from Handmade Beginnings.

The pattern is for reversible pants, but I wanted something a little lighter for summer, so only made one layer with a cuff.  They were so quick to put together and very easy!

Although. I must admit. I didn't start them until about 10:30 at night. And, I had a TON of work I was supposed to be doing.  BUT, what's a girl going to do when she finds  adorable fabric--on sale no less-- and it's just staring at her? Taunting her.  

Sew me! Sew me! 

So I sewed. And drank quite a bit of coffee the next day!


I think it was worth it. (Karis does too.)

I wanted Karis to show off her new trousers at church, but thought they needed a little dressing up, so I made a quick bow.


I used, roughly, this pattern from The Purl Bee.  

LOVE it!

I think more of these fabric flower bows may be in Karis' future. 


And, definitely more of these pants!

  3. How adorable!! I love that pants pattern. I've not used it yet but they always seem to turn out great! And who could argue with such a cute model too!?

  4. I really love these pants. I have so many cute fat quarters rolling around my house and I need to use them before I'm allowed to buy more. I think my little guy would look great in these and so I think Ill make some out of more manly colours.

  5. Cute!! and, I love the bow! = )

  6. Such a cute pair of pants and I love the bow! Your model is pretty adorable too! I have 2 grand-daughters due in May and June so I can't wait to start sewing for them. We have 4 grandsons, so it's going to be a whole new world when the girls arive :)

  7. OMG. Those pants are sooo cute. The baby looks absolutely adorable in them.

  8. Love it! Totally planning on making some for my little sweeties! Good work and gorgeous fabric choice!
