I know, I KNOW….it’s supposed to be Thrifted Thursday.
I even scheduled a lovely vintage post for today. But then, this afternoon I made these and I couldn’t wait. I’m sorry about the lack of thrifted goodness but I am super excited about these:
Awhile ago I made Simon a pair of plain suspenders and I love them. The look like this:
And I planned on making a pair for Grace but got side tracked and forgot. Until this afternoon when after I watched Grace yank up her pants for the 30th time I decided it was time to finally get to work.
Here’s what I used:
The entire project from start to finish took about 20 minutes. I just followed the same steps I used when I made Simon’s. (You and find the complete tutorial HERE )
The only thing I did differently were these two steps after I measured what length of elastic I needed:
And I after that I just followed the remaining steps and was finished.
It was easy and they totally work! No more saggy baggy britches. I love it.
I like them so much in fact that tonight I started her another pair—the new ones are made out of lace and I might like them even better than these ones…I’ll share them with you soon…very soon.
PS—Can you see my big mistake in this picture?
Yes, I forgot to change my white thread to a matching shade of pink. Dang it! Oh well…next time (and there will be a next time, several…in various colors) I will remember to put in coordinating thread.
