I have pants

Several of you asked about making pants out of towels. I had never done it before, nor had I seen it done before. I know a lot of people make things out of towels and these were so soft and so bright and fun I just had to try.

Have you ever tried to take a picture of your own legs??? Its not as easy as it sounds. So, I apologize for the awkward pictures (and never mind that cottage cheesy looking thing sticking out of them...that's just my leg). They turned out very cute and since they are just bummin' around the house pants, I wasn't overly concerned about perfection. Although I do need to re-sew the waist band. I can sew a 1/4" seam like nobody's business, but a 5/8" seam always seem to knock me off my game! I may go get another towel and make myself a "shower wrap" because these towels are just too pretty and I wanted to be surrounded by them at all times :-)

i always get weirded out when i have to sew a 5/8" seam. it's kinda like trying to color with gigantic color crayons. :)
