I just got a new sewing machine for my birthday and I finally got a chance to sit down and crank out some pants. I get really disapointed about the lack of cute boys clothes, girls get frills and ruffles and sparkles and boys get nothing. So I made some embellished cut boys pants. I made my own pattern by tracing a pair of my sons pants.

I used a freezer paper stencil to put the squid on these

My SO thinks these look a little girly, honestly I don't think they are that girly. The circles are reverse appliqued.

I'll try to get some action shots in the morning, the kiddo is fast asleep, I just couldn't wait to show them off!

I'd love to do a personal swap for clear safety eyes (15mm or 18mm)

Ooh, I love them both! I am a HUGE fan of DIY boy clothes. I'm expecting boy #2 in Feb and already working on ideas for him.
Here's what my first wore in his FirstFoto they took at the hospital:

Cute, I like the ones with the red. My DS (just turned 2) HAS to have pants with pockets!

DH says it doesn't look too girly EXCEPT for the flower print showing through the reverse applique. (Picky, isn't he?)  *I* think they're both great!

I think there both cute. I love the creativity. I do however think that the second pair are a little girly. Only because of the flowers. The style is fine.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
