Sewing for boy {pants}

I'm still loving Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby. After sewing the hoodie and booties I moved on to the pants.

Pants 1
The, oh so cute, pants. They are reversible and have a cute little panel on the bum.

I fell in love with these fabrics. They are bold and cute and I'm hoping they look good on a little boy.

And these little ones are corduroy on one side and cotton plaid on the other. Oh, and they just might go with the booties and the hoodie.

Pants 2
The pants are the size 6-9 months. They are definitely intended to have the cuff rolled up. When it is unrolled, the pants fit my 19 month old. And she's not tiny so if you are planning to make pants just be aware that they are baggy and have the potential to grow with your child. That's a bonus in my book.

    OH MY GOD! I want that book. These pants are FANTASTIC!!! You did an awesome job. WOW. I am seriously floored by how adorable they turned out! I have a boy AND girl on the way and I have found way more things to make for little girl than I have for little boy. These pants are incredible. I might have to try my hand at some (I’ve never made pants before… The inseam seems like such a scary task!)

    I love seeing projects for boys. They seem to be the forgotten ones in the sewing realm. I need ideas for teen boys. I make everything for our girls, and virtually nothing for our boys. Bad mommy. :-)
