As we anticipate snowmobiling, skating and sledding parties,
We were reminded, by Micah, that Micah has no ski pants.
What to do, what to do.
One option was, of course, to drive to town and look for some.
But the other option was to take up the $5 outerwear remnant I have from Fabricland... or Fanny's Fabrics before they went away, and make some.
Four hours, 2 zippers, a couple of cobbled together pieces of elastic and a rewound bobbin later
Micah has a nice pair of lined wind/weather pants.
Complete with zippers at the bottom.
AND they're black, so they match his new coat.
They're not insulated, but they should keep the wind and wet out.
Very sweet, if I do say so myself.
