Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 5 ~ Lined Motorbike Trackpants

  Day 5 has come around super fast. Today I sewed for the boy.  Who incidentally is turning 5 in 18!!!! sleeps, Yikes, that happened fast. Mr “I have no long pants” has been asking for some more warm pants for a while so I though, right, KCW is the perfect excuse to make him some, and what better way than to try out another option of the Tamariki Trackpants.   See another option of this pant here.

Today I made a hi-low long sleeve t-shirt using my very versatile pattern the […]

Pants for Portia

So as my obsession with pants continues I must show you 2 cute pairs of Sarouel pants (like harem pants) I made for Portia. I bought these cute little ones from a second hand shop in Tauranga called 0-5 (THE BEST SHOP) for kids clothes.  Arent they so cute?  And as Portia would soon grow out of them I just had to make her some similar. I drafted a pattern off the pair I bought and these are the pieces I […]
