I did it. I finally sat down with my brand new serger and tried it on for size. Oh, I am in love. It is a dream to have this machine! I’ve only tried out one stitch so far, but I was really impressed with how this baby handled my first project.
Lined upcycled jeans for my three-year-old:
I’m not entirely thrilled with the pants – my son seems to have gotten taller and skinnier (I didn’t think it was possible for him to get skinnier!) since I last made him pants. So they are a bit baggier than I would like.
They’re made from a pair of Goodwill-bound jeans, along with a thrifted flannel sheet for lining. I re-used the back pockets of the old jeans, just made them a little smaller. It has an elastic waistband (upcycled from the same material as the hat I made here), which I must admit, doesn’t look super cool, but is much more comfortable for an active three-year-old.
Now I need to get into serious Christmas present-making mode…. did you know there are only 17 day until Christmas?? Yikes!
