Hello, Hello , Hello!
One day the fabric had slid off of the chair it was laying on and went to the floor. Once I had found it my fur-puppies had all claimed it and it was covered in hair - so I washed it and folded it up and decided that it would make my pups a nice soft bed for the crate that they like to hide in. It has been in the crate with a pillow case for the last year and had been washed as often as I wash out sheets.
Then the other day I thought , I would sure love to have a couple of pair of warm pants to work in around the house. I checked my stash and could not find anything warm. The dryer was screaming for me to come get the things out of the dryer and as I pulled everything out I noticed the piece of blue fabric?????????
SOOO , I got this wild idea that I would make my very own pattern from a pair of pants that I have almost wore - out , but still enjoy. Next I thought I would use that piece of knit to test this new Pattern on and that way if I had muffed it , I would not be losing a new fabric, as my stash if really shrinking.
So, low and behold the pattern turned out much better than I had hoped for and I love these blue pants! Gosh, you just never know how things can turn out - so I guess this is the story of the "dog-pillow" that broke wild and turned into a really nice pair of slacks , which put a big smile on my face! :)
