Hey, it's officially a month late, but I finally finished my Christmas Tree Pants this weekend!
I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the picture quality in this post. I forgot about taking pictures until after the kids' naps so I was trying to keep them away but hurry up and get some taken before it got any darker out. I really wanted to go outside and throw the pants under a tree, but it was cold and rainy so that didn't happen. Maybe I'll remember to take a couple when we get our Christmas tree.
I love the stripey binding. I always cut my binding straight across the grain, but since I had that circle in the middle I decided to use bias binding instead. Really, I was just going to cut one small strip on the bias for the circle then do the rest my usual way so I could conserve a little fabric, but then I realized that wouldn't look right since the stripes would be going different ways so I made it all on the bias.
Max was being all whiny after his nap so I was trying to hold him while I took the pictures. But he kept slapping my camera so I set him down, then he went straight for the pants and sat on them. He's so cute. And since this is the only picture that shows some of the backing I thought I would share him.
Then Wyatt was getting all excited about the pictures so I let him in on a few. His poor little arms got tired quickly though, so this is as good as they get.
