|I played around with a few other designs, but today we will do stripes.|
|Then I folded the fabric with the tape on and laid out a pair of sweatpants to use as my pattern. I cut them out.|
|Next using elmers glue, or any WASHABLE glue. Apply it to the stripes using a foam brush. I only applied it to every other stripe, or the ones that were the wide ones.
Do this on top of plastic bags so the glue doesn’t get all messy
|Allow the glue to dry. I really slopped the glue on there, to make sure I got good coverage, so it took a few hours for the glue to dry, it will crinkle up a bit as it dries.|
|When it is dry or almost dry you can remove the tape. It’s kind of hard to see but you should see crisp lines where the glue is. To ensure the glue was good and dry I threw them into the dryer for a few min.|
|If you were just making fabric you are done. enjoy!
If you were making sweats, then take your pieces out, they may have curled up, but they will be fine…
Start by sewing one front piece to a back piece along the straight side.
|I topstitched the seams, because I like that look.|
|Then fold the piece and sew from the bottom to the top of the curve.|
|Once you have two legs put one inside the other with right sides together and sew along the “U” shape.|
|Then hem the bottom and turn the top under for some elastic and you have some very comfy little sweatpants.|
|The perfect little thing to go out and play in|
|Kids always look so comfortable in sweats, and now they are totally customized as well.
Have fun making your own prints!
