I mentioned that I felt a little guilty for a poor parenting weekend, having done a lot of sewing and not enough Harri interacting.
My friend Pippo ordered three pairs of shorts for her three little people well before kidsintyle, so it was about time that I got to it.
I love orders where you have one very broad parameter to operate within (i.e. pants), the rest being left up to me. Easy done.
Pair one. Elliot. Age 5 and World Lego Master.
Elliot loves lego. No one loves lego more, and no other 5 year old has ever been as adept at lego craft. This is the sort of stuff he an roll out in an afternoon.
So the pants needed to be lego-ish.
A long internet search revealed that lego fabric was in print, once upon a time, but no longer. So narrowing the search to notions, I found these, collected by an eclectic etsy supplier.
Add some alphabet side pockets (if you look closely you can spell out LEGO), and some spots on the back, and voila.
I chose the green because I made Ellie some natural linen shorts last year…
…and wanted to change it up a bit.
Word is Elliot loves the shorts, and I couldn't be happier.
