making: sweet baby pants

I was a lucky girl on Tuesday and got to spend all day with the delightful Jenny from mend and make new... she did a post a while back on how to make the cutest baby pants and I was amping to give them a go! I am a tad fearful of sewing knit fabric though and was keen on a bit of hand holding while I got the hang of it. Jenny is super sweet and despite juggling a newborn and two preschools she spent the day teaching me how to make these divine wee pants using this tutorial.

While they only took about an hours sewing... it did take us about 4 hours to actually complete them in between baby feeds and cups of tea!! 

Jenny also cooks the BEST scrambled eggs by the way! 

Thanks my friend for a lovely day with lovely company... I will be back!

I made these using a mid weight merino so they will be extra toasty warm for those sweet chubby legs..
The owl fabric is from Spoonflower and was a generous gift from Jenny



  1. Oh cute pants (and baby)-I'd love to hear more about those scrambled eggs.

  2. thanks for your kind words Kate, but me thinks you talk my sewing help and scrambled eggs up too much! he he! I really enjoyed yours and Theo's company and you really did such a great job on your pants (and those chubby legs are just too cute!)I finished mine by the way and then Pipi promptly made a mess of them! Looking forward to future sewing times together... P.S. I decided to have a milk making day yesterday, it was just what the Doctor order for me too! x

  3. Those do look sweet with the chubby little the owl patches! and so awesome to be able to sew, chat and be in each others company!
