Quick Change Trousers

Get ready for way too many pictures of the same item :) She was just being so cute I couldn't not post them.

Anyway, I've been eying this pattern for pajama pants for so long. It's from Anna Maria Horner's book "Handmade Beginnings". I finally found the book at our library today, and thankfully the pattern was there and in perfect shape. These were easy for me, but maybe a little confusing for someone who has just started sewing. Took about 1.5 hours. I love that they are modern looking and reversible!!!! Best of all, Demi is in love with them.

There are a little big, but that's ok, she will grow. I have them double cuffed here.

Can't decide which side I like more! There are all prints from Denyse Schmidt's line at Joann Fabrics.

I've also decided on a design for her big girl quilt. I'm doing a maverick star using Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow. It's going to make a twin size, so I have a while to get these 48 squares done.

Ok, last thing! My husband brought home a pallet for my crafting pleasure. He took all of the slats off, but we're left with this frame that I think would make a nice shelf once sanded and stained. He thinks I'm off my you agree?

I've seen them look really cool on Pinterest!


  1. Oh my goodness I love those little pants! Why do little kids get to have all the fun? I love the pallet idea! I have seen lots of that on Pinterest as well. Can't wait to see the end result!

  2. Love the pants-I just bought some of that fabric to make a dress for Allison! Demi is getting so much hair! Beautiful! And that quilt is going to be gorgeous!

  3. Thank you :) I remember when I first saw those fabric in blogland I was thinking they were awful.....well, now I'm in love! They are so well made and soft. I like that they look vintage too. I hope her quilt turns out, and that indint make any mistakes cutting because I dint have an inch of extra material!!!

  4. Holy cuteness!! Your daughter and those pants are to die for!

  5. Super cute! I found your recovered TOMS on pinterest and did my own. I linked to your pin on my blog :)
