Gator Bag

Look at what I made for Zach!

I sewed this nifty bag by following the directions (if not the exact measurements) set forth in this wonderful and easy-to-understand tutorial at mmmcrafts by Larissa! I took better photos of this when I made the bag, but can’t find the pictures, and now the bag is dingy from use, so you’ll have to put up with these lame photos.

I also sewed these dolphin pantaloons in clever Thai-wrap styling (also called fisherman pants). Craig came over wearing a pair of pants in this style and I liked them so much that I invited myself to his house and we each sewed a pair using his pants as a pattern.

These are really flattering on him. I wish I had captured that!

These photos were taken in Florida when we were vacationing. Today it is the first rainy, cold day of fall, and I’m remembering the warmth!

Hyperbolic sunset pants!

What an embarassing dust cloud lurking beneath my sofa. Don’t look.

How cool are these pants?! My sister-in-law Natalie gave me the pattern last year for the Boogedy’s first b-day. She originally saw the pants in Craft: Magazine, but my boy was already too big for the published pattern, so she bought me the book. She gave me money to buy yarn, which I purchased in cream and dyed using kool-aid (see previous post).

The pattern was really easy. I had one tiny question and emailed the author, who assured me that I was doing it right. Before I seamed them, I handed them to all sorts of people to puzzle over, including these two teachers at my school, who wondered on what planet this “thing” would be a pair of pants (and possibly why I thought “sunset” was an appropriate “boy” color scheme).

The Boogedy was impatient with photography while I was snapping these photos, and got grouchy, but you need to see the difference between the front and back of these pants. Plus, you get to see Nat, the gifter of said pants.
