this boy can sew

My 16 year old needed some shorts.
(warning content may offend)

Styles like this are roughly $70-$80 in surf shops.

Everytime were out shopping I tell him we'll make our own.

 He believes me now.

 I cut out one pair (he wants four) and showed him how to make his own pattern.

I forced him to sew some seams and he is GOOoood.

Well... I was looking at his face... when I took this.
The word smug comes to mind.
He is off out the door for another day in his fleetingly short teenage life.
He had swagger.
I KNOW it was his new shorts.

Ha, ha, ha! Mum's revenge?? Nice shorts! And I love that you acknowledge this state of being 16 is going to be short and sweet, and you let him make the most of it! (do you have a line of girls at your door?)

I've been teaching my girls ( 6 and 9) to sew and the little guy (4) is desperate to sew, apparently he wants to be a sewer!
Your son is too cute, cheekiness and all!!!

So awesome. Have to teach my boys to sew when they are older.

You're a wonderful Mum, producing not only a good sort but a sewer as well, what a dream guy he is, well done ;-)
