Third life longies ;)

It looks like we're going to get another holiday out of these! I promise they're not too short when she stands up



This poor wool is on it's 3rd life First it was a crochet soaker,


and then a pair of crochet capris....


and I just couldn't resist frogging them and using it for a pair of Holiday inspired longies.


and the little princess who inspires me


I also made her pair of fall longies with MM's Winter Pear,

However somehow the inseam is about an inch too short


...and because she accessorized by herself

how did you get enough from the crocheted soaker to make it into longies?

Your daughter is too cute!
