Check Out My Pants!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry


As promised, here are the pants (trousers!) I stamped over the summer.  It was a lot of fun and very cool to alter the fabric like this.   For this project, I used the large flourish stamp from Baroque Motifs.

Unfortunately, although I drafted up the pattern to fit me, I drew it up last October when I was about to compete. So, I will have to give myself another month or so before I can get my bottom into this pair. Not so clever of me.

 It was a little tricky to get these two patterns to match with the pocket, but it's a patch pocket, so I had a little play.

It took me a couple days of pondering to figure out how I could use those fabulous Antique Brads as a button.  In the end, I cut the legs of Brad and hot glued him to a an existing button shank.  I'll have to be gentle with it, but it will work great.  So no cookies when I'm wearing these.


I love how the back turned out!  I'm glad I stamped on the yoke bit, too. 

I used my bedazzler (I know, very 80's) and blinged up the flourish a bit.  Who doesn't love a few rhinestones on their bottom?

Hope you enjoyed and feel inspired to try your stamps on something new!
