::Welcome to my blog! This seems to be a popular page for those searching for bandana pants. However I invite you to check out the rest of my blog too to see what else is happening and for the occasional GIveaway!::
I found this great little tutorial over here for some super fun bandana pants. I went to Hobby Lobby and found some great bandana prints to use.
I might have gone a smidge overboard on the prints, but when you have the actual child that you are going to make them for with you, narrowing it down can be a bit overwhelming. However, I am loving the chili peppers!
I decided to change it up just a bit from the tutorial itself. Once you measure, cut and unfold, I decided to sew up each leg individually like so:
Then I turned one leg right side out, placed into other leg with right sides together...
Kinda like a tube. Does that make sense? Basically, looks like one leg. Pinned it, and sewed together. You can make a reinforcement stitch here if you'd like. Then, when you turn it back out, you should have something like this:
Tada! Then I turned down the top to make a casing, stitched that up and inserted the elastic. Super easy!
Voila! Chili pepper bandana pants!
Then, I couldn't stop there.....I made more!
These are how they look on the Monkey. A little long, kinda like ankle biters or samurai style pants. He likes them a TON!
Super comfy too.
I think what I like best about these is how they make seriously great play pants. Can do double duty as lounge pants too, no worrying about getting them dirty or how hard they play. Very inexpensive and SO easy! I think I had three pairs made up within one Veggie Tales showing.
Now, I wish I could have some nifty bandana pants!
