It has been a busy week! This is the last day of Kid’s Clothes Week for me; tomorrow is a day of rest. I’m very happy with all I have accomplished this week and it makes me happy every time I see my kids sporting their mama-mades!
Today I made a pair of swim trunks for my littlest. I used the Buccaneer Basketball Shorts pattern, soon to be released by Patterns for Pirates. Although it is meant for a knit, I knew from previous pairs that it had enough ease to be used with a woven.
I freezer paper stenciled the little lizard on to add some interest to the solid colours. The paint bled a tiny bit because I didn’t dare use a fully hot iron to stick the freezer paper to the nylon, but I’m all about ‘good enough’!
Since little Aaron still always wears a swim diaper, I didn’t add a lining so this was an easy sew. Now we just have to wait for the snow to melt and summer to arrive!
