Bringing back big butt baby pants

I’ve been putting together a (rather long) list of things I want to sew for the baby for quite a while; it’s mostly little boy baby clothes, burp clothes, bibs, crib sheets, that sort of thing, things to fill in the gaps and freshen up the baby wardrobe that is currently aging in plastic tubs in my basement. Let’s be realistic, it’s been nearly five years since I had my last baby, and seven since I had a baby boy. So that means not only has half of the stuff already been spit up on twice and covered with stains, the other half is either covered in pink ruffles or out of style. Wah wah.

BUT! That means I get to go bonkers and sew all kinds of new baby stuff, right? RIGHT. Starting with Big Butt Baby Pants. So far, three pairs made for my baby and one for a friend’s baby (had to include those here too since they were made with Fanfare!!!):

I remember writing a slightly nostalgic post a few years ago called “Goodbye Big Butt” about the fact that Clementine was potty trained and no longer had a need for the B3P’s since they have extra room built in for diapers and they look the cutest with a nice big squishy diaper underneath. Now I get to bring ‘em back. Hurrah!!!

By the way, my “Baby-To-Sew-List” Pinterest board has a few of things I am planning to sew for this baby, if you’re interested in taking a look.

  1. I love them! I would love to sew up some of these but would love to make the leg narrower. If you ever have the time( who am I kidding, your a busy woman) I’d love to hear how you would approach that. Maybe a future blog post?

  2. Amazingly gorgeous!! Can we have a video tutorial hahahahahhaa … cackles… shuffles off left stage. Ohhhkay, no really now. Can’t wait to see them with a real baby in em. Just fabulous xx

  3. These are so cute!! I’ve made your free newborn pants pattern but baby now to big for them so I was just thinking I’d need to buy your big butt pattern, thanks for the reminder!

    • Hi Karen!

      So the fabrics are:
      - frogs and alligators are Ed Emberley Happy Drawing for Cloud 9
      - marina (submarines and octopus) is Marina by Dan Stiles for Birch organics
      - blue striped is Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House for Andover
      - black linen is Essex linen by Robert Kaufman
      - grey elephant and dot flannels are Fanfare by me! for Cloud 9 fabrics.

      Most of these fabrics are now out of print or harder to find, but when I want something I usually just google it; also: Fanfare will print again next fall, Marina has a second similar run out right now at Fabricworm.com
