Posts Tagged ‘reversible pants’


I am a total force to be reckoned with in the arena of baby pants making.  I’ve been over the moon for Anna Maria Horner’s Quick Change Trousers from her Handmade Beginnings for some time now.  The pants fit really well and are so comfortable (well okay, they look comfortable on my baby, but as they don’t fit me I really can’t know this for sure) and so amazingly adorable.  But the very best part is that I get to use up to four different fabrics per pair of pants if I want to!  For a fabric addict, this is very, very good news.  Reversible pants have made many a gift so far and there are more in the making.  My own Soren has already outgrown the tiniest pants I made him, but this only gives mama more fabrics to pick out and more pants to sew.  Yay!  The reversible thing has really been working for me.  I can sew three pairs of pants and get six pairs out of it!  Win-Win!

So while on this reversible baby pants kick, I was looking to make a nice gift for some friends to go with some jars of homemade jam.  Hence, a set of reversible napkins made out of some gorgeous linen fabric by Echino with Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry on the reverse.  Now our friends can flip their dinner napkins around to suit their fancy, match their meal (unlikely, but funny) or to just display the least grungy side outwards (less funny, but a lot more likely).

Really, this kick has got me thinking that most things could be made more fun, more lovely and more practical by being reversible.  And maybe we could all do a whole lot less laundry….
