Heart Pants!

Array

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it seemed appropriate to post these fun little pants with heart kneepads. [UPDATE: PARSLEY PANTS PATTERN AVAILABLE HERE]

So easy, all it takes is four little hearts cut out of fabric. I already have another pair planned out (grey pants, pink hearts).

Array

Just cut out four hearts, sew them together two at a time with a small-ish (1/4″-3/8″) seam allowance, leaving a turning hole.

Array

Notch or grade the seam allowances and press them flat.

Array

Then pin and sew them to the pant leg in the desired location. As you can see I like to use a worn pair of pants to help me locate the spot where the knees are. Then sew up the pants and you’re finished!

(What happened to my resolution that I would sew more for the boy this year you ask? Don’t worry, I have been busy. More to come, soon…)

  1. Those are so cute! Hmm wonder if I could make them at all manly? Don’t boys need V-Day outfits too? LOL. Looking forward to some boy inspiration coming soon because I’m feeling the blues that I can’t make girly outfits:).

  2. These are really adorable! Am I missing something or do you have a pattern somewhere for the actual pants?

    • hi Melissa,

      I don’t actually have a pant pattern available (yet? we’ll see!); this is just a basic pattern I drew up to Clementine’s measurements.

      :)

  3. I was going to ask the same question. Do you have a tutorial or pattern that has instructions for the half elastic waistband? These are adorable!

  4. Sigh, wishing I had a little girl right now. Doesn’t happen that often which means these pants are awesome. I have some robot patches to sew on some pants with holes. When’s celebrate the boy? I need to get geared up.

  5. Very cute. Great idea about using worn pants to locate the knee! I made the kids wool p.j’s with knee pads and the pads are a tad low, but I wasn’t about to unpick the tiny zigzag stitch on wool:)

  6. Love these — think I will try hearts on the rear for my 8 year old granddaughter who thinks she’s 18.

  7. Gorgeous! Also, Miss C’s hair looks so lovely, is it like that all the time? Or do you, like me, frantically drag a brush through just before pics?!

  8. Oh snap! I’m about to do this to a pair of B3Ps in red cord (red on red) for my almost 10 month old for v-day. Perfect!

  9. ARK (spoonie book in the photo) is awesome. have you read her ‘encyclopedia of an ordinary life’? it’s awesome!

    i vote for unicorn knee patches next! i’d totally wear them!

  10. These are gorgeous. Might have to make a pair – maybe for my babe – she is 10 months and doing a lot of crawling – the hearts will give her some cushioning!! Love your blog

  11. Adore these. Do you have a pattern for the pants as yet please? Many thanks for your inspirational tutorials :) x
