Is that a monkey with a coconut?!
I was going to make a crayon wallet this Friday but my 2 year old Liam had other plans....
He got a hold of my box of crayons, and I lost all motivation to make it then. So instead I decided to make some pants for Ryker my 8 1/2 month old. (=
I was thrift store shopping with my friend Shonda last weekend, and I came across some knit "fabric" that had coconuts, palm trees, and says shake your coconuts. I had to buy it. When I got into the car I found that it was 3 pant leg pieces cut off of pajama pants? No clue... But still cool.
Then a few days ago I was trolling the new uploads on crafster and came across a user that also has a baby boy around Rykers age. She posted some cute clothes that she had made him. At the end of her post I saw that she had a blog :
I then HAD to go check it out. I saw on there tutorial for the little pants. I knew right then and there I had to make these pants out of the coconut fabric.
The tutorial has a pattern you can download. Very easy to follow. And of course I messed up. I didn't flip the pattern over to make the 2 pieces line up right so the back part is not bigger like it is suppose to be. Good thing Ryker doesn't have a butt!
