{i craft} lounge pants.

Lounge Pants Prudent Baby

another fabulous tutorial from prudent baby.
i truly adore this site!

i crafted this pair of lounge pants for my nearly 3 year old daughter late last night. the project only took me an hour in total - which, for me, i thought was quite quick!

things i learned.
make a pattern. i used a pair of her flannel jammie pants, tracing my pattern a little wider and a little longer, after judging how the flannels fit. worked very well.

keep a pattern. trace your pattern on freezer paper {or like} so you can hang on to it.
once you make one pair, you're going to want to make more!

add some extra cute. i used what i had on-hand for the faux drawstring.
next time i'll either use something less chunky or maybe some sort of cute ribbon.

i'm appreciated. my daughter enjoys wearing things i make for her.
she calls them her "special" pants.

i'm addicted. i think i'll use this same tutorial to make some for baby on the way...
maybe with a ruffle on the bottom cuffs!

So sweet - where did you find the fabric? Oh and maybe I missed it but do you have a tutorial for the banner sign you made for Father's Day. I saw it on your fam blog today and love it! I'd like to make one for Natalie's birthday party :)
