The Runaround Pants by Fishsticks Designs - Jersey Love Blog Tour & Giveaway!

 
Today is my stop on the fun & comfy Jersey Love Blog Tour!
I'm so excited to share the fabulous new Fishsticks Designs Runaround Pants pattern I had the privilege to sew, using the scrumptious new knits from Riley Blake Designs!

I chose to make the Runaround Pants for my 6 year old son. He's always asking for pants/shorts with "no buttons or zips", and that's getting increasingly harder to find the older he gets. These not only perfectly fit the order, but they are stylish too!
Now, I think I should share up front that I'm not especially experienced sewing with knits. As a matter of fact, I tend to avoid it most often. I know....I need to GET OVER IT, especially considering that I have this really great friend that creates all kinds of wonderful sewing patterns using knits! 
I love knit fabrics.......everyone in my family loves wearing knit clothing.....but the stretch always throws me off and my machine often like to "eat" them. This pattern was so easy to follow and such fun to make, and this fabric so nice to work with, that they have seriously helped me to loose some of my apprehensions and even start looking for more ways to sew knits! YAY!!!!! :)

I absolutely LOVE the layers of these pants! They are easy to add since most edges remain raw, and the thickness of the multiple layers actually made them easier to sew for me.
 Pockets! Pockets! Pockets! 
My Lil' Guy immediately counted and began to fill all the pockets!
**MOM NOTE** Be sure to check ALL pockets before washing! ;)
 And the comfy, stretch waistband is right up his ally!
(Such a kissy tummy!)

If you are looking for a no-fuss, easy to wear and fun to sew pattern, you're going to love this one! Especially since it offers such unique ways to create a stylish and wearable garment for boys.

I love these pants for my two boys. I just know I would find all sorts of cars in the pockets. May even eliminate the need for a diaper bag for my two year old! Ha!

I like the Beachcomber Dress best!! I was thankful to be able to sew it up for Bonnie (I'm on Thursday!)

Your Runaround Pants is super cute! Love the layered colours.

The runaround pants are my very favorite... but the carnival skort is a close one on the list. I would love to give knits a try by using one of fishsticks patterns! Thank you for the giveaway!
