So today I am working on sewing some more shorts for little boys. I found this great fabric (at Walmart of all places!) with blocked print of words and firefighter related pictures. It makes awesome shorts for a fun little boy who loves all things that go. I haven't had a chance to get back to finishing the shorts, but it will be done by the end of my very late night. Then I will post a finished picture. The color scheme in the fabric gives the wearer a good number of shirt choices. This is a great way to teach kids about color coordinating without being too match-y- match-y ( as my son does not like to match at all).

This is a close-up of the pocket detail, after the waistband is folded down he will have a nice deep pocket within reach. I will be working with the design on the next pair so it aligns within the seams. It should be a fun and interesting challenge, as I haven't really worried about. But as I look at the shorts I think it would really cool to see words and pictures continue over the seams.

(PS I love spell check! After a long day it is greatly needed.)
