This weeks Challenge: Something for a Boy (Accepted)
This weeks theme was perfect for me with two crazy little boy monsters in our house, plus I had been meaning to sew them some Australia Day pants for awhile now. I’ve been on the look out for Australian flag fabric for ages to make these pants but couldn’t find it anywhere. Guess what I saw in the shop the day after I finished them!
I found this cute kangaroo print though that is perfect for Australia Day pants and means they can be worn more often than the flag fabric could have anyway. I chose to make the Star Shorts in the Hunter version. (Top right in this photo) I chose to leave the pocket out, my boys both love pockets but my washing machine probably can’t handle washing any more of the rocks they like to hide in them.
I also chose to use the full elastic waist band from the scooter shorts.
The grey pair are size 7 and the blue pair are size 3. I’m excited for the boys to wear these for our family BBQ on Australia Day.
Happy Sewing xx
