The 20 minutes sweatpants

My younger son loves sweatpants. A lot. Yesterday, we had a little wardrobe crisis, since all his pairs were in the washing. So he demanded asked real nicely that I make him some. Indulging parent that I am, I took a pair of his pants, traced them directly onto some cotton jersey, cut and sewed. Added some elastic to the mix and 20 minutes later, we had this:

Perfect for lounging around, playing, jumping on the couch...

I had a hard time keeping him from wearing it to pre-school today. But tomorrow he has gym class, so I guess nothing will stop him then...

Sew Cute Tuesday


  1. 20 Minuten ja? Das hört sich nach einem super Projekt an und schick sieht es auch aus.

  2. Wow! That's my kind of sewing. =) And my children only wear that kind of clothing, so it could be a win win! Great job.

  3. Those pants are so cute and they look like they will be warm and cozy this winter :)
