Pattern Testing – Threading Rainbows

I had the pleasure of being part of the testing group for Threading Rainbows new pattern recently.  Jaala’s “Scrappies” have the brilliant feature of a fully customizable side panel where you can let your imagination go wild. Check her website for all the different variations the tester came up with.

Scrappies are a bright and colourful  festival/ lounge pant for both boys and girls. They are fun, funky and functional. These pants are the perfect project to use up all of your gorgeous scraps that you haven’t wanted to throw out. Let you imagination run wild with the inset panels. I have made them very wide so they provide the perfect canvas for your inner artist. Make them in whatever style tickles your fancy – modern, colourful, vintage,retro, classy and more.

Here are mine – modeled by my skinny-mini Mr 10 TR shorts 1

Yeah – such a poser! The side panel can be made from matching fabric, or follow the included instructions for creating a patchwork style panel – thus the name “Scrappies”

TR shorts 4The wide stretch waistband, which can be folded or kept flat, is so much softer on young skin than denim and heavy cotton, and doesn’t have the adjustable elastic that always digs into kids hips.

They are sized for newborns to 10 years and include options for 3 lengths – shorts, capri and full length. And if you’re a fan of One Thimble you’re going to happy to hear that the Scrappies are included in the next issue – Issue 5 – on sale November 14.
