The wrong trousers

The children have been introduced to Wallace and Gromit over the Christmas break and they are entranced.

Unfortunately, Wallace’s genius for incompetence in his creations has spilled over to my sewing loft.

I finally got the 2 pairs of upcycled jeans finished for Button this week.


You know…the ones I started in October of last year.

Just the 2 1/2 months then.

Which, whilst not a hanging offence in itself, doesn’t take into account the annoying tendency of small people to grow.

Right out of the jeans you should have finished for her 2 months ago!

Cue expletive of your own choice!  I had several!

For a split second I was tempted to let The Boy wear them…but figured that floral Liberty print pocket linings probably weren’t a look he’d want to rock…and that the grandparents wouldn’t forgive me.

Thankfully, his best friend at nursery is a delightful, curly haired little moppet and these jeans will fit her perfectly.

  1. I wish I was that tiny so I could wear the jeans! You don’t look like either Wallace or gromit in case you’re wondering 😉

  4. Love Wallace and Gromit, love the wrong trousers…por Button, but at least someone will get to enjoy them. Shame I´m not a teeny tiny person 🙁

    What, a kid can grow that much in a mere two months? Who knew? Lucky little curly haired moppet who gets to wear them.

    • It’s ridiculous. She once grew out of a pair of shoes overnight! They fitted her one day…the next she couldn’t even get her feet in. I keep telling her to stop, but she’s having none of it!

  6. Damn things do grow. But we do feed them so I guess its our fault all over again. :lol:. Cute trou though so thank goodness for smaller friends.

    They grow like billy-o don’t they! Glad you could rehome them though. And LOVE Wallace and Gromit!

    Oh, the joys of growing children!
    At least these got finished, I found a cardigan my mum was knitting for me to wear at infant school. It never made it off the needles
