When I walked into Selvedge the other day I saw this thick warm, not hideous looking fleece! And, I wondered if I could get away with making a skirt for myself out of it? I still might because it would be so very warm, though possibly not very attractive, but knowing myself, I wouldn't care and would probably wear it every day for the next six months. So, yeah, I still might make it.
Anyhow here are the pants I made for Axel out of it.
He doesn't know about them yet, because I made them after he went to bed last night. I'll snap a few pictures with them on; and then if they are really great, I'll list them on Etsy so that any of you fine folks can buy them up! The knee pads were a little wonky because I left my straight pins at the studio, so I was just sort of holding them in place while sewing. With this thick of fleece, there is a lot of shifting with the fabric. I will definitely use straight pins to hold it down next time.
That is all I have for today! Onto some big cooking projects and some new ideas I'm cooking up outside of the kitchen. Stay tuned. Happy Wednesday!
