Well since no one (other than Sarah) liked the landscape/art quilts, I thought I'd show off the finally-finished jeans I made for my nephew for his seventh birthday. This is the first piece of clothing I've made from the latest Ottobre magazine (04/2007, #29) and I found it quite challenging. Who knew you sewed the crotch seam before the leg seams when making jeans? I didn't and with terribly scant instructions, I didn't discover this until too late! I made some...ahem...adjustments, so I hope they actually fit him! We are heading down to Melbourne for a visit in September, so I can fix up hem lengths, etc. then, if necessary.
The owl is made from some leftover fabric I used in Wonky Geese. Isn't he cute?
And hooray it's hump day! The week is more than half done. Thank goodness. September can't come soon enough for me!
