What Do You Do...

when your son looks for shorts in the stores and turns around and says to you, I can make shorts myself???
You say, well the fabric store is thankfully right there let's go get fabric!
We used the pattern we used for his pajama pants and made a modified fly in the front. We took almost 2 inches off the long edges of the pattern for a trimmer fit. 
His new thing is drilling money to make buttons and I dragged out my buttonhole maker.
Yes and he actually sewed a lot of it. He's sewing the test pair here that we put together from old sweatshirts. Good job Gil!


  1. All I can say is this, you have taught him well. You should be very proud of not only him, but yourself.

    1. I can't tell you what an encouragement you are to me!!!
