Finished Quilts

Tuesday, 23 April 2013


What a fab sunny day today... washing dried on the line just smells better doesn't it?

After work this afternoon, I finished up the wee man's treasure pocket pants. 

les mckeown eat your heart out!
They are a teeny bit Bay City Rollers now they're finished, especially as they flare a wee bit too.  Anyway, I've learnt so much in the making of these that it can only bode well for future forays into dress making.  Inspired by all the amazing photos already on the KCW Flickr group, as soon as we got home from nursery, I got the wee man into his new troos for a photo shoot...

it took a lot of homemade bread and jam to convince him!

note to laughing boy: cut the flipping grass!
We had such a hoot but not many usable photos. He kept bending down whenever I crouched down to take a photo, cheeky monkey man.  And, by the end of it all the troosers were covered in jam, grass and muck then water when he spilt a whole glass all over them. So they are in the wash already.  I didn't prewash any of the fabrics so it's a nail biter to see how they will look when they come out of the wash!  I don't prewash any of my fabric before quilting - is it more important when dressmaking? #nervous

My plans to start the Easy Linen Shirt next have changed as the size starts at 2T and looks really big.  So I'm going to draft my own pattern for shorts - O.M.Double.G! 


  1. Superb - well done, I had major fail yesterday!

  2. Oh he is too cute, I love that last picture!

  3. Love the crouching photos best of all! Job well done :-)

  4. Lovely photos of the wee man in his fab new troos! I was at university when the Bay City Rollers were the tartan teen sensation.. aah those were the days ( though I was more into Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell and Crosby , Stills , Nash and Young).

  5. Your wee man looks like mischief. Brilliant BCR troos. Looks like the road testing was lots of fun. Di x

  6. There's nothing wrong with a bit of Bay City Rollers! Fab trousers Moira. Good luck with your shirt pattern drafting - eek!

  7. Fab, love them, and aren't they impossible to get good photos of! :o)
