Well, I finally finished the Huck Finn pants I was working on for little Xavier’s 2nd birthday party but too bad we didn’t get to go since I suspected Nay has roseola and didn’t feel like infecting a toddler birthday party, boo. But I’m going to share the pants with you anyway because they were a pain in the a** to make but turned out super super cute!

Now, I happen to have a slightly larger two year old model at home but he is so not going to get re-booked with the attitude he was sporting.

Nay is taking a moment to fly his crayons around before getting down to the business of colouring.

They look a bit tight on him, but I assure you it’s just how he was standing.  They had quite a lot of baggyness to them and a good amount of space in the waist.  That being said, at least for Nay since he wears bulky cloth diapers the rise could have been about another inch longer.

love the patterned flanelette.

As I mentioned in a previous post, the pattern for these pants were wonky.  I mean, something was not right so about halfway through the instructions I totally gave up trying to figure out what the author was talking about and just kind of did my own thing.

While I won’t be making these particular pants again, I will be making something similar for my little Nay.  I love that these play pants are short and not just because my little Nay has super short legs but I can’t blame him he gets it from the Irishness in his blood but that’s also where he gets his amazingly crystal blue eyes so I guess I can forgive the Irish. What?  Anyway, I think these pants are perfect for indoor playdays and running around, no pant cuffs getting in the way when you’re walking down the stairs is also a plus!


I haven’t given them to Xavier yet but as soon as we can get out to see him I’ll be sure to get a picture of him hopefully he’ll be a more willing model than Nay was.

    Sorry you had to miss the party but the pants are super cute. You did a great job on them, especially after having to *fly on your own* as the pattern was *wonky*.
    Hope Nay is over the bout with roseola.
