Og så syede jeg / And then I sewed
Mit nye symønster gik helt ned i børnestørrelser, så jeg tegnede af og klippede om morgenen. Stoffet var ikke bredt nok til mønsteret, så der kom en stribe andet stof ind på siden af benet.
The fabric with pictures from "Legend of Zelda" was so wonderful and soft and warm. Unfortunately, there was just a bit more than a yard left, which was enough for pants for my youngest nephew. If I was going to make them before going home tomorrow, I'd better get started!
My new sewing pattern was for kids as well as adults, so I drew it and cut the fabric in the morning. It wasn't wide enough for the pattern, which is why there is a stripe of a different fabric too.
When we arrived home in the afternoon, I started sewing on my sister and brother-in-laws old sewing machine, bought at a thrift shop. It works quite well, and it didn't take too many hours before the pants were done.
De er bløde og hyggelige, og jeg tænker, at han vil være rigtig glad for dem. Selv om de altså desværre ikke har lommer.......
Gad godt have sådan et par flonelsbukser selv!
They fit him okay, although I'll be glad if he doesn't grow too much for the next 6 months or so!
They are soft and cozy, and I guess he is going to love them. Even though they actually don't have pockets, unfortunately......
I really would love a pair of these in flannel myself!
