it's in his jeans

This week I made Harvey some jeans.

ready to rumble

I upcycled an old pair of Dan's jeans which had become too patched to be worn in polite company. I was going to make a simple pair of linen pants using this tutorial, but it turns out that I hate learning basic skills. If it can be done in linen, it can be done in jean, dammit! So after a lot of fudging and improvising an addition of knit fabric for the waist-band, I ended up making a cute pair of jeans for Harvey with plenty of room to grow (both vertically and horizontally).

The patches and slight bell-bottom and general cobbled-together nature of the pants make Harvey look like a real hippy. Much to the pride of his parents. The look is perfect for sitting outside on a gardening afternoon.

I just need to make him a straw hat and he'll be all ready for spring!


A straw hat would be awesome!! I would totally want one too. I'm already jealous of the jeans.

Also, you'll note that in the last picture he's already living off the land: i.e., eating grass.

Yum, grass :) Very nice Leah!

Next project?
