Baby wrestling and boat shorts

When I received my scrap bag swap parcel some gorgeous blue vintage fabric with boats and bubbles/ circles literally jumped out at me screaming ‘make me into shorts for Noah.’

If you follow my blog closely you will have noticed that I have a thing for dressing the boy in boat shorts.

What began as a ‘photo shoot’ turned into an impromptu baby wrestle.

Isn’t it such adorable fabric?

And it was a great way for me to practice using my new overlocker.

Noah was staying at my Mum’s when I made them, and when he asked what I was doing, she replied “probably sewing” to which he said, “I know Nana, but WHAT is she sewing?” When I was reunited with him and gave him the shorts he said: “I yove (love) my boat shorts” and hugged them close. Cute aye?

Thanks everyone , and Stella I meant to put a link to the pattern here - so thanks for reminding me. I used the MADE pants with a flat front tutorial (but for shorts) from http://www.danamadeit.com/2008/07/tutorial-kid-pants-with-a-flat-front.html ... you need to follow the links within that to get the pattern. (I also didn't make mine as long as she did.) Hope that makes sense?
