Mama made a brand new pair of trousers

I am ashamed to say that in all 2,5 years of Simon's life I've have NEVER made him a piece of clothing... bad, bad Mummy!! Even though my sewing machine has been working overtime, I produced nothing wearable for him (nor for Amber...I can't remember what the last thing was I made for her).
However, the time was right now! Probably spurred on by the first signs of spring, I made a pair of trousers for him of fabric that I bought last year. Of course when they were finished I wanted to see how they fit (and yes, take a photo of it too!). Simon didn't think it was such a good idea.




















After lots of begging and pleading he felt it was a very BAD idea...




















Eventually this is the best photo I got:




















He couldn't wait to take the damn trousers off!




















Don't you look so pleased, young man! You ARE going to wear them, even if it means I have to glue them to your bottom!!




















(I'm making a skirt for Amber right now... thank heavens for my dear daughter who'll wear anything as long as there is a hint of pink on it)

Oh my, he is adorable, tears and all! I've never made Alex anything to wear either. It's been ages since I've made anything for Lily, so you're not alone.

Oh poor Simon and poor you. That can be tough. I like the striped pants - maybe he would like a softie with the same striped pants? Just an idea. Oh, and thanks for the comments about the bag. I'll have to finish it now!

What a Doll!!! Cute pants too. Girls are fun to sew for, when my daughter was younger I made most of her clothes. But I just can't get motivated to sew for my son. I guess I should make him some pants. They are so cute!!

You know my daughter don't like to try them on to see if it fits while I'm sewing, but she likes to wear homemade stuff, and even more when she gets to choose the fabric (I'm trying hard to suggest there's more to life than just pink !)this little boy shouldn't cry, because these are such cool pants !
