These are the pants that I made to replace
the pants that my son recently outgrew.

This is the spot where my son colored with ink on
the pants that I made to replace
the pants that my son recently outgrew.

This is how it looks after I scrubbed
the spot where my son colored with ink on
the pants that I made to replace
the pants that my son recently outgrew.

This is how optimistic I am about how long these pants will last because of
how it looks after I scrubbed
the spot where my son colored with ink on
the pants that I made to replace
the pants that my son recently outgrew.

me - unimpressed

  2. Cute post! You made nice pants for him. I think scrubbing is much harder on fabric than regular washing, so they may last better than your final picture suggests.

    For privacy, you may want to change the name of the photos you add to blogger because on the blogger dashboard it tells your son's name in the photo designation although I don't see it when I go to your page.

  3. Heh! That's the question - will they outgrow or wear out the pants first?

  7. Wow, you did such a great job on those khaki's! Have you tried to treat the fabric with scotch guard to prevent soil built up or use dryell fabric cleaner to sponge out pen, marker, sauce etc? It's a good investment.
