I don't want to look like a Leopard

I made my son some new shorts last week.
This is how I see it.
 Not long now and he is not going to wear  anything I make at all. Although almost six, he still prefers elastic waist pants. What I did forget was that he is  growing and getting an opinion on what he likes.

So after finishing the pants I asked him to try them on, he did, but when I suggested he wear them on a recent field trip he ran away! I did stay calm (gasp) And when I asked him why he did not like them he said " I don't want to look like a leopard.

He has since worn them twice and is now happy to resemble an animal!

I cuffed the pant leg with linen and I do like the look 

 In stead of an label I sewed in a piece of contrasting fabric to mark the back

I like them!

Bow ties

I just finished making a birthday present for a special boy we know.
He loves dress up and can get very excited over the right kind of clothes.
Sounds like a challenge to me! And the perfect excuse to sew something different.

I made him 3 really fancy bow ties to wear. They are all different, one small and more somber(green), for maybe with a shirt, the other really playful with a dog bone print in red and white and the third a over the top, fancy , big , polka dot and plaid tie.

I opted for a band and velcro closure in stead of the real tie me I am a bow tie ties.

I love them!
