modeling

it is very easy to make things for girls. Most fabrics are for girls, most patterns are for girls and hence most of my quilts turn out to be for girls. But i wanted to make something for Mitch. He asked for pirate pants. How do you turn down a request like that? So i found a pattern online and just copied what they did. Traced a pattern from a old pair of his pants and then jumped right in and got to sewing. I think these took me all of an hour and only cost like $4. How cool is that? Not the greatest pictures but the other ones i took were blurry because my model does not like to hold still. The flash makes them look silvery but they are more like a loden green color, and the fabric is kind of like velvet but has some patterning like cords.
