Quick Change Obsession
I got a little "wanty" about the Quick Change Trousers. And the next thing I knew, the Mogrunt had three pairs.
I love this pattern - the contrast on the bum gives you the opportunity to play around a bit. Of course, I'm not exactly a pro-sewist (sewer?), so I didn't do the best job lining up my pattern pieces on the fabrics. You can tell, for example, on the red pants above, that I didn't really optimize the gnomey-ness of the back of the pants.
Ah well, learn and grow, learn and grow!
The pants below, with their elephant-camouflage look (perfect for hiding in the forest with your elephant friends), were the first pair of quick change trousers I made:
I'm still not sure if these are cute or bordering on obnoxious... but hey, the other side of these pants have dogs driving cars, so really, who care? Dogs driving cars, man, dogs driving cars!
The most recent pair of QCT, were these, Superman pants, for my sweet boy's 2nd birthday:
With the comic strip in shades of blue on the reverse side, I'm not sure who likes these pants more, the Mogrunt or his mama:
What makes me a little sad about these pants is that soon enough, the Mogrunt will grow out of the pattern sizing. And then there's the day I dread, when the Mogrunt starts to rebel against wearing the things I make for him. Until then, little man, it's elephant camouflage and gnome pants for you!
