Baby's First Jeans

I'm still making things for babies! It's not my fault; the people around me won't stop having them. I present to you "Baby's First Jeans", by me:

I did two varieties, one with buttons, the other with snaps.

They're in denim, of course, with linen linings, though I think printed cotton interiors would be even cuter. Or what about flannel, like those turn-ups I used to wear when I was a kid?

I'm toying with the idea of faux front pockets, that V-back yolk, or a fake fly-front. What about my own custom-label pocket, with my signature? OK, a bit over the top... I think these two pairs have enough details to start.

If there's interest, I might make some for my shop, or maybe a craft fair. I haven't done one of those in a while!

Oh good lordy, are those adorable! And way more wearable than actual baby jeans. I got so many pairs of jeans for M in 0-6 month sizes, and I'm here to tell you, they do not work well for squirmy babies!

Holly - those are super cute!!!!! I love that they are considered "baby's first jeans", just a great idea! I love the stitching you did on the back pocket!

Thanks, ladies! I really enjoyed making them. I'm so glad you think they're a success!
