KCW Project 5 - Zebra Maxaloones

The Wild Things Theme inspired me to make some pants with a bunny face on the bum.  When I went looking for patterns to adapt I found the Maxaloones pattern.  I sure love the idea of pants that fit for so long and cuffs that can keep little legs in baby carriers or strollers warm.  I decided to try it out without the bum circle for my first try.  They are a bit wonky, but room for improvement means another excuse to sew so that's ok with me!  I used some micro-fleece for the body of the pants and an upcycled cotton/lycra t-shirt for the cuffs and waist.  I think I will try to make a large a few times before trying the newborn size again.  It is pretty tricky sewing a cuff with such a small circumference. 


  1. This is really adorable! I want to try that Maxaloones pattern too!

  2. These are so cute! I know what you mean about the cuffs, I found it tricky doing them on a tshirt for my 18month old so newborn must have been even harder!
