10 minute pants/shorts

this is sooo easy ... you've got to try!
this pic doesn't do them justice-- they are extremly cute! a light weight denim w/ a little scrap of quilting fabric for a pocket.

i found this post { http://madebypetchy.blogspot.com/2008/06/tutorial-10-minute-trousers.html } on a crafty blog i like to read. i took the 10 minutes (plus a little extra b/c i put a cute pocket on them) to make darling pair of shorts. she has a whole tutorial including how to pictures. check it out and make a pair.
i don't know if y'all have seen the pledge to 'buy handmade'... these were so easy, i'm tempted to take the handmade vow and make elisha's clothes next season... maybe i'll vow to make half, and buy the other 40% at consignment sales... we'll see...

Hey Jane, I have to admit I am probably not going to sew a pair of these shorts, though if LB made them for me, I think I would look pretty good in them.

But, I just wanted to thank you for the compliment you left in the comments on my last post. It was much appreciated. I'm sure you and Andrew never have those types of issues though, with him being the stud that he is.

we do think you should be the humorist for some famous publication...
and what andrew lacks in mangut he makes up for in chest hair ;-)

Hmmm... you'll make half, and buy the other 40% at consignment sales... where will the other 10% come from?

the last 10% could come from anywhere... gifts maybe.... you have to leave yourself some wiggle room ;-)
