time for some boy sewin'

"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.

As usual
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
I realized
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
