…for making cut-offs out of all my kids’ knee-worn pants. Here, a cute trim cut from a stained button-down.

This is a free pattern I stumbled across last week, here. Maxwell has some knit gloves but his fingers were bright pink by the time we strollered from one location to another. So, I grabbed an ill-fitting sweater of Jonah’s and some thin stretch fleece from my Christmas stocking project two years ago.

The directions are pretty easy although the pattern pieces are for adults. Also, I had to stitch the fleece lining to the outer sweater along the seam at the thumb and the tip of the fingers. Otherwise, the inside twists around and becomes a bit difficult to negotiate when my little guy takes them off.

More cute pictures.
