Pumpkins were scooped and carved...and if you were Liam, chewed on.  Fynn did a great job helping with the knife work and the artistic vision, however he was not at all impressed with the pumpkin guts.  
Tonight we will all walk around the mills and visit with friends and neighbors with the Hulk and Batman.

Fynn has pants!

 Excuse the dark pictures, there was no light outside this morning and my house is really dark!

However, Fynn did go to school wearing the Quick Change Trousers I finished for him last night! I do have to open a seam and tighten up the elastic a touch, he was sleeping when I got to that part and I really didn't want to wake him up to measure, but I wanted to finish them.  Oh well. 
 He quite enjoyed mugging for the camera!  And if you ask him his favorite part of the pants, he will tell you...
 He loves the little people on the butt!  This is my kid alright! 
I did make the outside out of quilting weight cotton fabric.  The inside, although they are completely reversible, is made out of some bug flannel to keep him nice and warm on this crispy fall day.  I made the 4t size and well, my kid is a bean pole and I think they will fit him for a while.  He will definitely grow out of them length wise first. 
The Main fabric on the outside is Dimitri Vine by David Butler.  The butt patch is some old Castle Peeps I had on hand.  The Flannel side is some bug flannel I got somewhere, maybe a Joann Fabric sale.  And the butt patch on the flannel side is some of the Moda Sock Monkey Knit in brown that I had hanging out.  I actually had just enough left for that butt patch...they don't take much.

Take the Challenge!

I know I am a day late starting this, but I think it is ok.   I was actually working on a pair of pants for Fynn last night in the sewing room, so I totally think it counts. I have quite a few kids projects that I want to get finished up for them this fall. Including Quick Change Trousers, Jackets and a cute little skirt for my Niece, all from the All Set pattern set by Anna Maria Horner! I think this will be a great excuse to really focus on this set of sewing for Christmas and Fall this year.

I have been working like a busy little bee making Christmas stuff this year.  The move has been great because I now have a sewing room on the first floor so I can just pop in there any time I have even a few minutes and work away at whatever project I have going at the time.  And, I have a lot going.  There will be pictures, many pictures to come as people start receiving their gifts.
