Today post is the continuation of my weekly update "Diy Friday". Sorry for not updating my diy's episode for so many weeks, I have been busy with a lot of good things :)
My little boy needed some new shorts to wear on summer. All his shorts are getting small and tight at the waist. Well, I decided to search my stash and found leftover of knit cotton that is enough to make two shorts. Yay!
3 cm wide elastic
Based on BurdaStyle Boy's Sweatpants 10/2013-124 size 110. I cut the pattern right on the knee and slashed a little (2 cm) in both sides to avoid tightness. I skip the front fly and pockets.

I worked on the pattern first, by glued the two pieces of the front and back together. So both sides of the patterns are in the middle. And then I added 1.5 cm seam allowances and hem allowance.
After that, I cut the fabric 2x.
Then sew the shorts, sew the waist and inserted the elastic.
Sew the hem using twin needle and for decoration, I fused a little ball fabric sticker in the corner of the shorts bottom. Done!
You can see here the final shorts, front and back views
And the closer look of the little ball, isn't it cute? :)
I am planning to make one more shorts with the same fabric but different decoration. Up to the boy, he will chose the train or the airplane :) I have both fused fabric stickers in my stash.
A little note:
