Ben and I used to give each other points for each meal that we made and the points were solely based on how many soon-to-go-bad items we used in cooking our meal.
Soup made with old celery, onions, and potatoes? That would be 3 points.
Pasta made with pasta sauce that was opened a week ago? That would be 1 point.
I know - it's a really complicated system (ha!) but it got us thinking about what we needed to eat so it wouldn't go to waste rather than what we wanted to eat. And so in an attempt to apply the same philosophy to my sewing I'd like to introduce you to my two-point-pants.
The main fabric is left over uncut corduroy from this hat and the contrasting fabric is left over quilting cotton from this dress.
Granted these fabrics weren't going go "bad" like food, but all the same it feels good to use those last little pieces up.
Pattern: Basic Pocket Pants from Growing Up Sew Liberated
Size: Cut out a size 2T with a 3T length because I omitted the cuffs
