Those Shorts

I finished Jack's shorts with that great fabric I got a few weeks ago. The hedgehog print is his favorite.



Shorts are probably the easiest things to sew. I just use a regular pants pattern and shorten them. I made these a little big. We all know how fast kids grow.



Happy Spring! I think it really is here.

Great shorts!

Happy spring to you too ~ it's definitely not spring here ~ 25 cm (about 10 inches) of snow forecast for us in the next 24 hours!!

They are just great! He looks good in them. Looking at all you do makes me want to sew also, today I was just looking at all the patterns, but it is a little hard to sew when I have a 4 year old who is always home with me.

Cute shorts....and I just love little boys in Chuck Taylors! Cute!

Funny about the loophole that enables you to put fabric purchases in the family clothing budget! Smart!
