I struggled with Kids Clothes Week this year as my kiddo is at the age where he has very strong opinions on his outfits. There must be jeans, there must be t-shirts. No other clothes are acceptable. It took lovely Ms. Mucho to remind me that there is nothing that says the clothes have to be for your child. So I decided to make a favorite from my own child’s past for a new little one. These are the Quick Change Trousers from Handmade Beginnings. I made the 12-18 month size for my friend whose little Z is just about 1.
The really awesome part of these pants is that they are reversible. Which makes them a bit stronger for that walking/crawling stage. Also, gives you more chances to use cute fabric. For one side I used a giraffe print for the main part of the legs and an olive green panel for extra diaper space. The other side is a ombre blue leg with a mustache bum.
What I really like here is that the fabric is left over from a blanket made for this exact same baby way back.
How cute is the giraffe print peaking out when the cuffs are turned?
