Lounge Pants - DIY

I've been wanting to make clothes for Greyson. Not a whole wardrobe, but a few pieces here and there. I found a great tutorial on how to make lounge pants. Luke had discarded a few old polo shirts and I saved them for a project like this. I made my own pattern and cut the pieces out. At this point, I decided to take the pieces to Springfield to have my Grandma help me. We got a pair of pants sewn in no time. I love them!

I decided to try to make another pair. I proceeded to sew the crotch together the wrong way. I back-stitched and everything, so I didn't want to take the time to undo them. Plus, knits make it hard to hide mistakes. I decided to make small bean bags. I read on a blog the other day that a bean bag toss is great for toddlers. The bean bags turned out great. We even had something that worked for the hole to toss them in to,. We used the CAT HOUSE. lol

  1. I've never had the desire to sew before, but all your little projects make me jealous that I can't!!
