So I finally finished the storybook-inspired pants for No Bill Dill's Once Upon A Thread Series!
And I'm really happy with the way they came out!!! (they're size 3, in case you're wondering)
If you aren't familiar with the premise in Bill Martin Jr.'s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, it's simple: every letter of the alphabet climbs up the coconut tree when, chicka chicka boom booom, the tree shakes sending letters falling everywhere.
It's such a cute book with a wonderful read aloud rhythm.
And do you notice this new detail? My own personal "Meremade" label!! (Blurry photo, sorry!)
Both of my boys adore this book so I wanted to make pants that reflected the playfulness of this story.
Of course I had to include the coconut tree....(strategically placing those coconuts!)
A few falling letters in the front and...
A few in the back!
This is my first time participating in a sew along (if you'd call it that) and it was fun to give myself a new challenge!
