"What are you going to do with that?" Josiah asked,
looking at the red and white striped shirt
I'd brought home from a recent thrift store run.
(No one assumes clothes are for wearing anymore...)
I told him I was thinking it'd make some cute hats.
"No, I think it'd be better as a smaller shirt," he said.
I figured it was time for some boy - sewing.
I didn't think to pull out the camera
until after I'd cut into a 50 cent pair of pants.
If Josiah hadn't wanted belt loops
I would have finished his shorts in 15 minutes
since I used the existing hem
and both the inner and outer leg seams.
After I'd cut out the shorts
what was left of the pants
was just about perfect
for shorts for Brandon!
The crotch was quite baggy
so I took care of that first
then put a 1 inch hem in the bottom
matching shorts for 2 of my best buds
