New Blue Pants

I have a thing for Gabriel wearing blue. He has very blue eyes and I like to play them up. Maybe it's from my mom... she always bought us clothes in the same color. I was always in blue because of the blonde hair/blue eyes thing and Emma was always in pink because of her red hair/rosy freckles. Or maybe it was the reverse... I can't remember now. Mom pretty much only wears blue. And doesn't wear any variation on pink/coral/salmon. Doesn't look great. I read a book in high school called How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents where the mother of the four Garcia girls assigns each a color. I don't remember the colors, I think they were blue, pink, yellow, and green, but mother buys four identical outfits all the time in each of the colors. So the girls are always matching but in their respective colors. I have always thought "what a streamline concept for laundry..." Anyway, back to Gabriel and blue. That was a really lengthy opener for a very simple event: I made him some new pants.
They are just simple pants made of blue linen I found in the remnant bin at JoAnn's- R.I.P
But of course I had to snazz them up a bit...
Embroidered patch on the rear
Leg hems

Thank you for you patience. :)

I kid you not, on my list of projects is a pair of pants for Gabe. I found a cute tute for pants with patches on the knees. Way cute, I love the light blue, perfect for spring!

Correctionnnnnn!!!! You wore pink because of the blond hair, and Emma wore blue because I thought pink clashed with the red hair. I was wrong of course, like on so many other things. Anyway, cute pants. Gabe does look darneen in blue!
