Emily is a bum-shuffler. Her preferred method of locomotion is to sit on her bum and pull herself along with her feet. She's been doing this for over a year now and, as you might imagine, it has rather a detrimental effect on her trousers.
(she very rarely wears dresses - bare legs on the floor get sore, and tights develop holes after a couple of wearings)
I'm loathe to buy her new trousers, as she will surely be walking soon (surely) (oh please) and then I can buy new ones knowing that they are safe from holes. So I collected her best, warmest pairs of trousers, and found some thick bits of fabric, and made some patches.
Then I sewed them in place with three rows of coloured stitching. By hand, because using the machine on toddler-sized trousers seemed far too fiddly.
Emily is helpfully showing you the new patches. 'Trousers!' she says. It's a good job she's so adorable.
(and to forestall some of the comments, yes, her doctor is aware that she's not walking. It's all under control)
