Surfer Slacks Redo

KCW is over, but I have one more project that I made! Well, I should say, that I updated!

SurferSlacksRedo-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

This is my last project for KCW and my mending bag is pretty much done!

SurferSlacks-Cuff-ImFeelinCrafty

About a year ago I made the Surfer Slacks by See Kate Sew. Love the pattern! Aren’t these pants cute?

They were much cuter when they actually fit! Unlike the pj’s he wanted super long, these he didn’t care that they were about two inches too short.

But I had to take them away to figure out what to do with them!

Shorts! Perfect!

SurferSlacksRedo-Back-ImFeelinCrafty

My son loves comfy pants, but, like I’ve said before I have to make cute comfy pants or he’d wear sweat pants every day! And these still fit just fine everywhere except the length, so I hated to put them in the garage sale pile or something like that…

I just had to throw in this picture because it totally makes me laugh. It looks like he’s trying to escape from my photoshoot!!

What did you get done for KCW? Everything you were planning on? Anything?

Surfer Slacks and a Giveaway

 

I’ve been loving using patterns from other bloggers I follow and it’s true for the Surfer Slacks by See Kate Sew!

SurferSlacks-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

This was another project I did while at the beach house! Fitting, huh!?! Surfer Slacks… Beach House… And what do you think about the fabric? I found it while I was at the beach and I couldn’t help myself! I loved it! And I thought it would be kinda funny to use fabric with surf boards on it for the surfer slacks!

SurferSlacks-Pockets-ImFeelinCrafty

The pattern was so easy to follow! There’s only a few pieces, actually. Or so it seems! The kiddo and I both love the big back pockets. I think he really likes to un-button them and run around listening to them click together!

Part of the pattern is the fun big cuffs. But as I was making them, the whole family veto’ed the cuffs. I already had them cut and everything. But everyone said no. So I went with the peer pressure.

The problem was, without the cuff, with the pants hemmed, they were a little short. Then the kid had a growth spurt. Yes, in one month, he GREW!

SurferSlacks-Cuff-ImFeelinCrafty

So I added the cuffs! Now they aren’t too short and have the cute cuffs!

SurferSlacks-Waist-ImFeelinCrafty

Another favorite part is the waistband. It’s a knit waistband that covers the elastic. It just looks so comfy to me! There weren’t actually too many fabric shops around the beach, so I ended up finding a knit tank shirt that I cut up and turned into the waist!

I don’t know if the kiddo loves the pants or having his picture taken more! But I’m pretty sure he loves both!!
