Its been a year since I had a short lived affair with my sewing machine, trousers for my boy were made http://abigsmile4.blogspot.com/2010/02/i-am-knitter-not-sewer-including-30.html tried on, deemed too tight, folded up, put away and forgotten about, needles and yarn in hand once more and all was well again.
But O is once again in need of some Summer adventuring trousers and with a trunk full of wonderful fabric, gifted from a friend, it felt wrong to hit the high street and part with cash.
So with O at playschool,Woman's Hour on Radio 4, I dusted off my neglected sewing machine once more.The faithful thing, sprang straight to life and these trousers were made in just less than an hour, an hour, for goodness sake.O has decided they are just right for driving trains in.
Excellent pattern and sewing advice, came from here http://handyprojects.blogspot.com/2005/04/how-to-make-easy-kids-pants.html
Plans for two more pairs to be made this lovely, long weekend, O has chosen dinosaur and batik fish fabric, just perfect for Summer fun.
