how pretty!  I have this pattern, but have made the non-cross top style so far.  I guess I will have to try this way next, eh?  Seems to be all the rage on this site!

I love that fabric!  Too bad you've run out of it now.

Very cool!  I need to work on my tiered skirts for my little miss, who is just too . . . something . . . for dresses now! 

Great job!
1265  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / "hot wheels" denim shorts on: August 03, 2008 07:42:18 AM
Okay - so yesterday I decided to work on a pair of shorts for my son - he really likes hot wheels, among other things, but is old enough to need sturdier fabric than quilter's cotton for his shorts.  So I decided to make the shorts out of denim and add a border and a couple of pockets out of the printed material.  Here is the result:



Action shot!


So - some questions:

1) do you think the border on the bottom is too wide?  It kind of had to be to get the cars on, but I'm thinking of making another, similar pair with a different fabric, and want some opinions.  My dh thinks it's a bit wide.  Personally, I like the width.  DS totally thinks they're cool as-is, but he would have liked the whole pair of shorts to be covered.  So - opinions on that, please!

2) What do you think of the width of the shorts legs?  I just shortened a pants pattern, and I'm thinking of making a bit more room for the next pair.  But my boy is quite skinny, so he's actually got a lot of room in these.  It would just be for the aesthetics and to match more the style of the day, ya know?

3) placement of that front pocket?  DS requested it there, but I think I might like it either to be bigger in that location (had already made it when ds asked for the placement) or for that size, to be up a bit higher.  Am I being picky?

Anyhow - any comments are welcome!

Oh, and both materials were from the remnant bin, so these probably cost me about $3.50 to make! Smiley

How cute!  What a lucky little dude!  I need to learn to make t-shirts.  Gotta find some ribbing, etc. . . .

And we all know that when you're changing a baby, having something pretty to distract your eyes from the poo is always nice.

:DHa!!  That made me laugh!

Great job on the bag, BTW - that would have come in handy for me when my two were little!

That's a great bag!  I am slowly inching my way toward needing to make one.  The more of these I see on here, the more tempted I am . . . . Wink

Gorgeous!  I love the fabric and the quilting.

And - Athenamat - Good luck on your big exam coming up this week!  You'll have to let us know how it goes!
