Pants with candy

While searching on the message boards for any info on new products going to be released this year. Not like I need anything new! I stumbled on this idea by JudiHarrington . This a pair of pants cut from pddu and 2 smarty sticks of candy inserted for legs. I requested the cut file but have not received it as of today. Not sure what happened but I couldn't wait any longer.

Last night I decided to have a go at this. Since ds is easy to adjust sizes I thought I can do this. Think positive! After many samples I finally got it to where I like it. All the while singing in my head...just keep swimming..... The pants are cut 2.5 inches across by 2.75 inches long. I had to adjust the legs to fit the candy sticks. I stretched each leg to 1.5 inches wide. I used the same pair of pants for the front and back, however the back I used the black out feature.

I then took a oval and a square to form the pockets. Each piece is about .75 inches wide by .75 inches long and welded together. Using a stampin up stamp for the detail on the pocket stamped in white ink. I inked the edges but you can't see it that well. Simple stitch marks all around with a ball point pen. Gem stones for the bling and ribbon as a belt.

Words were done in word. Using a template from an other project, I resized the circle to about 2.25 inches. At least that is my best guess. I printed a few before I got it right. I punched them out with a stampin up scallop punch.

I am very happy with how these turned out. I am going to do some different style pants next time.

These are SOOO adorable!!! Thanks for the details. My big question though, is how did you wrap the test into a circle in Word? If you've got time to tell me, I'll be your friend forever!

Thanks for sharing your lovely work. :)
