You’ve seen the Bubble Shorts floating around blogland, right?! Every time I saw a pair, they got cuter and cute – I knew I needed to give the pattern a try. And sticking with our current series, I went Red White Blue. This is what I’ve been doing while the series rolls on the blog – sewing sewing sewing. And peeling wallpaper (you can read a little about that adventure from Trevor’s view) – but sewing is much more fun to show off:
I made the pockets of of red with some of the chevron zig-zag on top of it orientated the opposite way of the rest of the shorts, to make them stand out a little more.
You can’t tell in the pictures, but the fabric has silver glitter all over it – it’s awesome, and I found it at JoAnn’s. The shirts have silver dots all over with neckline and about halfway down, which I thought was a perfect match for the shorts – I found the tanks at good ole Walmart. Along with the Star banner, which was only $1. Score.
Will your kiddos be wearing Red White and Blue this summer?? The last time I made my kiddos something was back in 2010, and they were still pouring themselves into those skirts with shorts just yesterday, so it was for sure time for something new.
