Shorts for Me

So, this was supposed to be a post about a pair of shorts I made…for myself.  shorts It was supposed to be about how I graded up the pattern I used for Sweet Pea’s shorts last week to make me a pair of shorts out of this brick red denim.  shorts 5 I was supposed to tell you how I made a fly, for me, and it works, and I like it.  shorts 4 I was going to show you that I put darts in the back to accommodate my….hmmmm…we call it tooshie in our house.  shorts 3 But, the kids, not just my kids, also the neighborhood kids, had other plans when I stepped out to take pictures.  shorts 2 Eventually, I just threw the towel in and invited everyone in to eat dessert.  shorts 1 Even though my photo shoot didn’t go according to plan, I can tell you I really like my new shorts, and I’ll definitely be making more!  Maybe next time I can get a few pictures without being photo-bombed! shorts 6

    Sweet. Don’t you just love those moments? I’m not all that spontaneous, but sometimes it’s good to just be in the moment even if it takes us away from another activity. Such a great reminder for me. Thanks!

      My first response was…give me a moment to get my picture taken. That obviously didn’t work, so I just laughed it off and moved on. I definitely need help living in the moment though…maybe that’s what my kids were trying to teach me!

    I love your photo shoot! It looks super fun, and your shorts are great. They certainly look good while moving.

    If the shorts are comfortable enough to join in impromptu games with the kids, they’re a winner! The shorts look great on you.:)
