I'm making shorts...

...while freezing my butt off.

Because I finally got a knit short pattern for boys in the latest Ottobre magazine.
I really like knit shorts on boys.
I think that they are cool
and hope to play around with the pattern next summer.

But I did just want to make up a pair in the meantime
to try out the pattern and some embroidery.
Even though I am shivering in my cardi!

Pattern: Marley Bermudas from Ottobre 03/2010
Fabric: Knits from Crafty Mamas shop
Embroidery: Fox from Anja Rieger Design

My son seems happy.
They are long, even for Bermudas
but they are a size bigger than my son anyhow.
Easily shortened in future.
The embroidery is super cute.
Check out Anja and Sonja's website for lots of cute designs.

my son was looking through a new kids clothes book I got the other day and said "why don't you make me anything anymore mum?" ... ummm good question. They looks great Tas. I took my embroidery machine out the other day and used it for the first time in maybe 6 months. I love it so much, why do I leave it so long??

oh and while you are shivering it is 5.45pm here and just starting to cool down for the day, I think it must be only about 32 deg now ... it is times like this I really miss Brissie weather

Fantastic "sneaky fox" pants ... as my son (3yrs) has just described them.
