What a Nice Day
This is the lounge pants I have worked on for Cory for Christmas. I have always used fleece for this project - but curiosity got a hold of me and I wondered how about using a knit so that they would be worn in the Summer time ?????? I found this knit with the cars all over it -so I decided to just try and see what happens. I do like the way it turned out and I am happy with the end product.
The part that gave me trouble was putting a button hole in the band for the cord and the elastic . My machine is just as stubborn as I am so that makes for fixing dilemmas a challenge. I finally figured out that I had to turn off the machine and then readjust the button -hole design and then it would sew it -but it would not let me sew one button hole after another. I thought that was a lot of trouble to waste time with - but what ever works is the path I have to choose. :)
