Kid Pants From Dad's Old Pants

I made some jeans for Henry from my husband's favorite jeans. There was just no way to salvage them anymore. Luckily, he has a new favorite pair. I used Dana's Basic Kid Pant Pattern. I kept the elastic kind of loose so that I can get it fitting him perfectly when he fits into them.
I made sure to place the pockets in the right place. They'll be huge on a little boy, but they'll sure be cute. And I bet he always be able to fill them up with something.
I also added some little belt loops and lots of topstitching.
 The knees are already worn in and
they have fleece inside to protect against falls and maybe strengthen the knees, so they don't get holes. This is a little boy we're talking about though so who knows!
