Pair of corduroy pants for Alastair, who is currently obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine:
I know it seems kind of silly to have painstakingly handmade clothes with a mass media character on them - but if he's going to be obsessed with Thomas, he may as well be so in individual style!
Unfortunately they're too long, I really need to adjust this pattern. The cuffs were quite fiddly so I am not keen on unpicking them, but I really think I need to *sigh*
This is a lovely soft thin-wale corduroy, btw. I got it as a 'short roll' from a co-op, which means (I think) it's basically the extra width off the loom that clothing manufacturers don't want - perfect for kids' clothes, and nice and cheap.
And a nice simple project, some flannelette wipes:
I'm planning on making a few of these at a time over the next few weeks to practice my overlocking (especially curves) before I attack some mama pads or any more nappies. After all, a wipe is still pretty useful even if its a wonky shape, and with two in nappies, I doubt I can have too many wipes.
