KCWC - Hot Pink Bubble Shorts


I managed to eek out another clothing item on the last day of the Kids Clothes Week Challenge!  I've been seeing these Bubble Shorts pop up all over blogland this week and they were just all too cute to resist buying the pattern.  The pattern goes up to a size eight, so I think I will get lots of use out of it for years to come.  So much stuff can be stashed in those big pockets!  I always laugh at the pockets on toddler clothes that wouldn't fit a flea in them, but these are definitely functional pockets.  I used up the last of my Echino hot pink linen for these.  I'm very interested to try making another pair in voile, some of the seams with elastic in them with the linen were a bit hard to sew.  Plus, I think voile will give them a whole different look and will be great for the hot summer that will inevitably show up here in Atlanta.  Now I'm off to go clean the piles of linen fuzz out of my sewing machine before I forget!
