Jen asked for pictures of the pants...and the clock. So here you go. Not my finest photography skills at works here, but you get the idea.
For the clock:
1. we color copied one of our favorite Hadley pictures. (she wasn't about to donate one of her originals. She's very touchy about her art. Just ask my Mom.)
2. Phil cut the board to size and painted the border edge in the color Hadley chose.
3. We modge podged her picture to the board. (it wrinkled up a bit and I thought it was ruined, but then when it dried it smoothed out a lot and now looks presentable.)
4. We went to the thrift store and found an old clock, which Phil dismantled and re-installed.
5. We still have plans to frame it out with white border trim, but for now it sits in the basement and looks adorable. And keeps time.
The whole thing was Phil's idea. I just helped implement it.
For the pants:
I don't have time to tell you the steps right now, but maybe I'll have time to find the link where I got the idea and post that a little later. The bottom line is that I have three pairs of pants for a total cost of about 1.00. Including elastic and fabric. I used scraps for one pair, and old shirt for the snowflake pair(the headband is the collar from the turtle neck), and some knit I got and the thrift store for .25 cents. Pretty cool, huh?! That's why they turned out. I didn't have anything to lose, so I just went for it.
