Made

Well, looks like I went with the pants for Pony Girl. I had to, the situation was dire. A five year old with a serious lack of pants, with winter coming on... something had to be done.

Pony Girl is an odd fit when it comes to pants. Store bought doesn't cut it. And my last foray into pant making went slightly askew so, I had to try again.

I used a lovely stretch cotton by Moda Fabrics and gorgeous ribbon from Farbenmix along with a few other trims for embellishment. They have been Pony Girl approved.

And as you can see, I did find a way to work on a little hooky goodness by way of a flower charm for the pants!

Now, there are 2 big bags of apples that need attending to in my kitchen!
Have a lovely day.

A lucky little lady indeed - I'm sure you deserve a little hooky time now! x

Just be prepared for the other school moms to start approaching you to make some goodies for their girls. I'd get the biz cards ready!!

Also if your school is anything like ours, there will be many opportunities to donate a goodie or two for auction items. A little advertising is always good. (This is all assuming it's something you WANT to do). But when they start seeing your goods . . . there will be a demand baby.

That fabric is great, I love Moda. The other girls are going to want those.

Where do you get your labels, they look so nice?

Maybe you will share what you do with the apples.

Have a good evening.

That fabric is amazing! Oh I am so jealous! A is weird with pants.. She is too big for her age and everything is "Skinny" right now so we're up into 7s! but have to cinch the heck out of the tummy and roll up the legs. ARG.
Hope the apples go as lovely as the pants

Now they are seriously cool pants - do you make adult sizes?!

I bet your lovely pony girl is thrilled with them and delights in wearing them.

Love all the details! My girl is hard with pants too. She's too skinny for the length she needs.
