The other day my great Aunty gave me some old sheets that used to be my Nanna's. She new that out of me, my brother and sister I would be the one who would like them. There was 2 pink floral and 2 blue floral and then a blue check sheet. So I thought I would make Chris some around the house shorts. I used the comfy pants pattern from "Sew La Tea Do". I just made the pattern a bit smaller, I used elastic that was again my Nanna's that mum gave me that was in a box full of old sewing bits and bobs. So all up these shorts cost me $0.
They even have pockets, which is great for keeping his phone in away from little miss.
And because they were for a man, I thought it would be best to put in a tag at the back. Just to make it easier for him when putting them on, so they aren't worn back to front.
I made this a while ago, it's a new little plastic purse made from some of my vintage sheets and some Bambi fabric. I made a handle for this one, basically I use this daily when I am out with Ruby. It is full of my cards, money phone etc, I can put it in my stroller or pop it in a bigger bag. When I walk Ruby into the shops she likes to carry it, hence the added strap. And when I am by myself it fits perfectly into my hand bags. It is just very handy.
I am finally getting my craft on after a slow start to the new year.
