This was one of those projects that I started before Christmas when I was in my total pregnancy-induced craft slump. I decided to make some Quick Change Trousers from Anna Maria Horner in the hopes that I could whip up a couple more for my nieces for Christmas gifts. Needless to say, the pants got so far and then were abandoned. Since then I have seen numerous blog postings about how great these pants are so I decided to finish mine.
Oh my, they are indeed darling on the little man. He was so cute when I first put them on him. I think he thought he was pretty cool stuff…which his mama told him he was.
A fun bonus, is that they are reversible. He’s wearing the blue in the picture above, and hanging here is the red side.
The pattern is found in Anna Maria Horner’s book Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby.
My busy Elias will be wearing these often I believe!
I keep meaning to make some of those for the preverbal “hope chest” , as well as some for my nephews, and haven’t gotten around to it. This might be the kick I needed! great work, they look adorable on him! how do they fit over his cloth diaps?
