Sewing for Mini: Shorts

I've put quilting aside for a time to sew up some clothing and hopefully a few other projects before we leave for our family vacation at the end of the month.

A couple of weeks ago we had a nice day time high in the 70s and I realized that poor Mini had no shorts.

The last few days have taken care of that problem.

 I simply raided my stash, found some cute cotton prints and sewed up some shorts.
 It doesn't take much fabric for a two year old - even though I have to sew up size 4!
 This is one of those great projects that really only cost time.  I already had all the fabric, elastic, and even buttons.
 I don't remember where I got the Care Bear fabric -  maybe my grandmother?  I'm glad to have found a use for it.  I didn't have enough fabric for facing, so I just used a muslin. 

So far its been too cold again to wear any of these, but they are saying 80 on Friday.

BTW Happy Star Wars Day
May the Fourth be with you!

That's what I'm getting ready to do...raid the stash for some pieces of fabric for some quick shorts and tops for my 3 year old grand daughter.
