Who Wears Short Shorts?
It's hard enough to get a decent clear shot of a toddler.
It's even harder when the toddler has been busy touching up the camera lense.
They say the quickest way to a mans' heart is through his stomach. I say the quickest way to a crafty Mums' heart is to insist that the new shorts made by Mum must be worn right away. And then, later after your bath and while wearing pyjamas, you should endlessly flash your new shorts in front of the web cam so your friends on Skype can see them before insisting you change out of your PJs and into the shorts and model them for all to see.
Shorts adapted from an Ottobre pattern; "frog pants" I believe they were called. But really other than using the size as a guide for cutting, very little else was followed as I chickened out on the fly flap, did my own waistband and pockets (the Smurf's love for money means shorts without pockets are not acceptable attire) and left out the weird longer pants part. They have been sitting without the waistband for months so it was nice to get them finished ready for the impromptu Skype fashion parade tonight.
