To make mixed print shorts, I simply cut the front pattern pieces out of one print {navy floral} and the back pieces out of another print {yellow polka dot}. Then I sewed them as normal and they turned out so cute! Mixed Print Shorts. These are freakin cute! And so easy to do. No pattern needed!

Isn’t she so cute in her mixed print shorts? I love the white peter pan collar shirt with the busy shorts. Mixed Print Shorts. These are freakin cute! And so easy to do. No pattern needed! via @CraftaholicAnon

    You amaze me with your creativeness and I’ve fallen in love with every project you’ve done. Your newest chocolate bar calculator is another big hit! Having taught for over 10 years now, I can tell you that handmade gifts are the ones I remember the most. Don’t be surprised if you learn that the teachers at your child’s school argued over who would be lucky enough to get your child in their class. A super crafty mama is like a goldmine in the classroom! Enough of the compliments though….I’m off to find some bright patterns so I can make my own mixed print shorts. Best of luck for a great school year!

    Linda, I just saw your “pin” that showed a pictorial of how to make a rag rug. Pretty rug! I just don’t get exactly what you did to get the fabric in your mat. Also, did you tie the strips in a knot once you got them looped through the mat. Please advise. Thanks. Carlotta
