One Pile Down

One pile down about 57 to go. I thought I'd start on the 'pants for the girls pile. They are so easy and you get results quickly. A couple of pairs of corduroy ones and some pyjama pants, or they can be 'lounging around the house pants on a cold rainy afternoon pants' like they were yesterday. And while I was in production line mode an extra pair for my niece.
It is always nice to make something for the girls. They don't care if the sewing is not straight, or it's a bit big, they don't whinge about the colour. This is one thing about two year olds that I love.

Fabric bargains on ebay are hard to come by these days, but I was so glad to get this huge piece of wool blend fabric. Teal and Aqua - one of my favourite colour combinations. Enough for a coat for myself and lots left for little projects.
Time to tackle the next pile

Ebay does suck for fabric bargains now. I thought it was just me.

I love piles, especially when they disappear. Nice pants too.

Hi - the trousers look great! I am always amazed how quickly people can sew! I am so bad at it!

Love the pants and the fabric is to die for!

My piles are growing again on me...especially those that hubby has purchased and the items need hemming.
