Heart Pants!

Array

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it seemed appropriate to post these fun little pants with heart kneepads.

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:).

    • 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.

      :)

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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:)

  5. 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
