Pacman Knee Pad Pants For Baby Tutorial

This was a late-night spur of the moment idea. I wanted to add some knee pads to Henry's pants because he's crawling everywhere and we only have tile in our apartment. I thought it would be nice to give him some extra padding, so that is how the fantastically geeky Pacman Knee Pad Pants were formed.
1. Find or make a pair a pants.
2. Cut out Pacman shapes. I cut mine out of some faux leather.
3. Stitch them onto the knees of the pants.
That's it! It's a super easy way to dress up some simple pants. I added some dots on the right leg just like the dots Pacman eats in the game.
 
Henry was super interested in them when I put the pants on him for the first time. He tried to take the pads off.
Then I took him outside to try them out. At first he just looked around. Henry is also wearing his button-up shirt onesie made from a man's shirt.
And then he was off.


It's lots of fun dressing my baby in geeky stuff!

  3. Hi! I've been following your blog for over a year now, but this my first comment. I love your ideas and tutorials. I has loved the video of Henry crawling. I recently had my first child and getting to watch Henry grow up has made me even more excited about getting to watch my daughter grow and change over the coming months.
