- Two 5" x 3.5" scraps of fabric for the tabs
- Two 1/2" or 5/8" buttons
- Chalk or other fabric marker
- Tie Dye Diva Snazzy Pants Pattern for boys and girls, sizes 1 to 5 years or any pants pattern
Step B: Complete the pattern through Step 1, including pressing the seam toward the back of the pants. If you look really carefully at the finished photo up top, you'll see I added some faux flat-felled seam stitching to be fancy. If you want to do that too, do it now. Then set the pants pieces aside.
Step C: Form each tab by pressing both short ends of your 5" x 3.5" piece under 1/4".
Press in half widthwise to form a crease and unfold.
Press each long edge to the center crease.
Press in half. Topstitch all the way around the tab and buttonhole one end.
Step E: Sew a button on the right (outward-facing) side of the pants on the center seam, centered in the box of stitches you sewed.
That's it! Proceed with the pattern and wear 'em rolled up or not as you wish!
