Max & Meena Black & Yellow Maxaloones Sewing Project

Grow with me Maxaloones that can be extended as Little Pickle grows or pulled over his feet whilst babywearing.

They also have a bum circle to accommodate cloth nappies.

Tools and Materials:

Yellow rib from Abakhan
Black Jersey from Daddy's Old T Shirt

The most difficult bit out of the way first, pinning the bum circle.

Sewn and overlocked.

Pressed and top stitched.

Side and inside leg seams.

Leg bands next, folded and sewn along the long side.

I use a straight stitch and press the seam flat to reduce bulk.

Then fold the leg bands back on themselves.

Belly band next, folded and sewn.

Pressed flat - straight stitch again to keep the bulk in check.

Folded back on it'self to make a tube.

Leg and belly bands pinned and sewn in place.
