My Creative Space

The other day..I started these little cords.

The green corduroy and the doily pocket were picked up at the op shop. I used the 'Cute Kids Pants' pattern from Sew La Tea Do by Pip Lincolne. I made a lightweight cotton version here and thought the green cord would make a snuggly pair for Winter. It's very thick cord so I handstitched the hem using a slip stitch. They are great little pants and cost no more than $2.00!

 Lulu loving her pockets and her new 'barpoo shooz'(purple shoes).

I stitched the pocket on first but when I assembled the pants, I decided to move the pocket down a bit but now I am thinking it might be a bit too low. That's okay tho'..I'll sort it out next time. I'll be using this pattern for some jammi pants. Because I am a beginner sewer, I really like to make something a few times. All part of the learning process for me.

Thanks for stopping by and happy, happy weekend! Yippee I LOVE weekends!

No way - Lulu looks so grown up in that photo!!! You are doing a great job of the pants! The pocket is fine where it is and twas a very clever idea to use the doily!
