I started with my shower curtain from Goodwill and a remnant of a Hawaiian print I got at Walmart.
Here is a great tutorial on how to make kid pants if you want to give it a shot.
Here's what I learned while constructing these pants he will never wear again.
- Don't use such bright bold fabric for the cuffs... looks a little too costume-ish.
- Move the pockets up to where he could actually use them... if babies actually used pockets.
- Leave more room in the rise! I made this mistake last time too. Doh. I thought I left enough room, but his booty is still quite cramped in there.
- Go drawstring next time.
So, even though they came out way not like I wanted, I still got a good laugh.. and learned something. To quote my husband, "You're not going to make him wear those, are you?"
