Dinosaur Camo Pants!

Do you remember the dinosaur camo fabric that I got a while back?

Well, I made the intended dinosaur camo pants out of it for the boy for Christmas I just hadn’t had a chance to share them.

I traced off the shape of some scrubs trousers that I have to make a pattern, and added pockets (I was briefed to make the pockets big, so I made them the size of an A4 piece of paper, and was told they were too small, go figure!)

I have since made a second pair, with some minor modifications. Not entirely selfless though, as it means I can steal a pair if I need something to lounge around in :) It’s not too sad to be wearing matching PJ bottoms is it?

Lastly, a quick note on my blogging activity – you may have noticed that posts around here have been a bit thin on the ground lately. That’s due to a combination of working on things that I can’t share on here yet, and also my life being a bit crazy busy at the moment (I’m moving soon, exciting!). Hopefully things will be back to normal around here in a few weeks time.

    Cute jammies! Good luck with the move!

    Do you read the Did You Make That? blog? I thought your dino fabric looked familiar. She made a skirt out of what I think is the same print. Here it is: http://didyoumakethat.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/b5285-the-dino-skirt/

    Hi Rachel,
    Just to let you know I've nominated you for a Liebster award over at http://rocketsews.otheredge.com.au/?p=137. Don't know if you're into the blog awards idea – I just really enjoy your sewing adventures :-) Hope the move goes well.

    Nice. I think the matchy-matchy is awesome. I just found your blog today via rocketsews. Its cool that you're in Melbourne, we should meet up and go fabric shopping together. Or fabric-window-shopping. Whichever.
