So the story is that my little girl only had cotton pants last year and as the winter months approached, I felt convicted to get her a warmer pair of pants. To save money and to be ultra resourceful, I decided I wouldn't buy, but I would make this pair of pants. I've never crocheted pants before, so after months of crocheting, screwing up and redoing and redoing and crocheting, in January 2014, I completed what I consider to be the best pair of pants ever.
They were cute, versatile, easy to coordinate with tops and of course, I spent countless hours making them. On top of that, I was and am especially proud of the fact that aside from the months of man hours to make them, the whole project cost less than a dollar. I had bought 5 skeins (rolls) of yarn at an estate sale for $1 and the yarn was good stuff!
She really liked them! But now, sadly, perhaps after a wash or maybe after I foolishly bought her two pairs of fleece pants, she refuses to put them on. So while they aren't being used anymore, here is the memory of her awesome pants.=) Props again to Winyan SooHoo for giving me inspiration to do this. To see other masterpieces, check out this post.
