Just another pair of flannel baby pants...i made these out of material i use to make a quilt for my little brother using the rookiemom tute. so now he matches his quilt.

and an action shot on the quilt

and because i'm shameless

The pants are a bit big so when i put in the elastic i left a big piece of tail so we could go back in and pick it apart and make it bigger later. i think he like the quilt more than the pants though...its more interactive lol

So cute!  Would you be able to post a link to the tute you mentioned?  I haven't been able to find it.

No, you didn't!   Grin

I used this fabric to make my (adult) brother some pants for Christmas.  I just walked in the door from buying more so I could make my son a pair to match!

The quilt is super-cute too.  What a great sister you are!

What a happy little monkey! Love the pants (thanks for the tute link) and love the quilt too.

Coffy or bouncy, it's all the same at the bottom of the river.

awwww cute!!!

I love comfy little pants for babies.  We get most of our clothes as hand me downs and we get a LOT of baby sized jeans and they just seem so uncomfortable.  I think I need to make some little pants like this for my baby. Smiley

And maybe something for my 5 year old son as well.  I am always kind of reluctant to make boy stuff b/c it just isn't as cute most of the time, but you're right... we need more boy stuff. Cheesy

There's always the tried-and-true applique method.  Don't know if that appeals to you, but white t-shirts are cheap and it's easy to do.

That's how I differentiate between the t-shirts that are NOT to get muddy/stained with spaghetti sauce and those that can.  Gotta keep some nicer for sleeping in..

PS I agree that boy clothes are soooo boring.  Why is that?

I find I relate more to Max & Ruby as I get older.

Exceptionally happy looking baby! Reminds me of mine when they were that small...

I'm with you: I don't like doing buttons/buttonholes either. In desperation, I redesigned a baby shirt pattern I had so that it opened at the shoulders instead, completely bypassing the whole button aspect. I closed it along the shoulder area with some of those sturdy snaps you hammer on. The seams went together so well, the snaps were really unobtrusive, so you couldn't tell the shirt opened up there. It was a very neat look, and I made what seemed like hundreds to bolster my baby romper and t-shirt collection...I've just gotten involved with Craftster, so I haven't rigged up any tutorials yet, but I intend to.

In the meantime, you might want to try it yourself, or do a buttondown pattern, replacing the buttons with soft velcro circles...play with it. Babies are live-action dolls to dress up. It's fun!

Beware: Someone pretentious is looking back at you.
