  34. Bonnie MS says:

    I plan on finishing a pair of basic black pants for my 3 year old (using Titchy Threads Small Fry skinny jeans pattern with an angular patch pocket) which are maybe half done; as soon as my son realized they were plain black with burgundy lining he declared he didn’t like them since they had no cars, trains, air planes etc. on them….soooo…hopefully once they are completed he will “see the light” and want to wear them. It seems he is just like me and doesn’t like solid or basic garments. Even though all the pretty colorful prints certainly do not go together lol and on that note I will then refashion some loud grandma dresses into skirts for me :)
