This past week has been so warm, feels like spring is on its way (hooray)! So I've cleaned out my wardrobe, weeding out all the winter clothes that I haven't worn this year. But what to do with my old velour jacket? Not really warm enough for a cold frog like me, but so soft, so difficult to throw away...
I decided to make it into some pants for Mr Fun.
I started by cutting off the sleeves. I left the cuffs on, so that they could be the cuffs at the bottom of the pants. I added some extra material (from the front of the jacket) to join the two sleeves together, so that the pants would be wide enough to fit over cloth nappies.
Next, I tried the pants on Mr Fun. They were not quite long enough in the rise. So, I cut the waistband from the jacket and made it into a waistband for the pants.
I inserted elastic into the waistband and finished off sewing the waistband.
Finished! They fit pretty well :) I did leave them a little long - so hopefully he will get a couple of months wear out of them before they get passed on to someone else.
