My Creative Space

I have finally had enough of watching my son's pants continually sag as he runs around due to his lack of bottom. And as I was perusing Etsy looking for some cute car ribbon to make him a belt I decided I couldn't wait that long and decided to make due with what I had. I used some cotton webbing as the foundation and folded some Japanese rocket fabric to match, a few D-rings later and a completed belt to keep a skinny kids pants up! An added bonus is I will no longer have to watch him run around with one hand on his bottom trying to keep his pants from falling around his ankles. Now that's what I call success.

Please head onto Kirsty's for some fabulous creative spaces.

Super cute! Funny about the lack of bottom. Too funny. I'm sure many adults would be jealous of that and love to have no bottom and have no need for belts!

That's REALLY cute. I'm having a duh moment right now (DS doesn't know any other way to run but with one hand holding his pants up, LOL. He's 7!). You've inspired me.
