Surfer shorts, a Rabbit Rabbit Creations pattern & give away

Yay, school is out for summer!! How are you all doing? My rascals are in our patio, splashing about in the kiddie pool and running around with their waterguns or can be found at the lakeside, looking for watercreatures.  Did I mention I love summer? And today I get to show you a pattern by a pattern compagnie that just screams summer. Oh and there's something fantastic in it for you too! Just keep reading till the end of this post!

Rabbit Rabbit Creations

Rabbit Rabbit Creations has quite a range of simple, classic designs perfect for this warm weather. The patterns are mainly girl and women orientated, but you can also find a couple of little gems that are great for boys. The bucket shorts are one of them, I was in Jasmin's  bucket shorts tester group and the pair I made back then (in the middle of our winter) now gets a lot of wear over here.
Today I get to share another great boys shorts pattern, the Surfer Shorts!

Surfer Shorts

The Surfer Shorts pattern has a size range from 1-12 years and there's a size chart you can check to personalize the fit. I made my rascals a size 3 in width combined with a size 5 and a size 4 in length. An easy adjustment with a good result.
The pattern works for both woven and stretch fabrics, so I made two different versions. My youngest loves "soft pants" so he got a jersey pair.

And also good to mention, they're just so quick to sew up, I did both these pants in an afternoon. I'm planning to make the rascals both a pair in real swimshort material to wear at the beach.

    1. Hai Lies Bet, wat vervelend! Ik durf niet te zeggen waar dat aan ligt, ik heb wat gecheckt vanaf verschillende computers/ tablets en daar staat hij wel. Kijk je wellicht met n mobiele telefoon, dan kan het wel ns zijn dat er alleen de tekst rafflecopter staat en je daarop moet doorklikken?

    2. Hoi Lies Bet, ik heb even verder gezocht en het lijkt javascript gerelateerd, ik heb een extra link toegevoegd voor browsers die daar moeite mee hebben, hopelijk kan je nu ook meedoen!

  2. Op m'n iPhone zie ik de rafflecopter wel, paar op m'n laptop niet. Ik vind het alleen niet zo handig om deel te nemen van op m'n telefoon, veel te veel gedoe. Jammer.

    2. Bedankt voor de moeite! Ik heb net meegedaan. Ik hoop dat ik het goede ingevuld heb waar ik iets moest invullen. Wist niet goed wat er bedoeld werd. Maar ik ben een kijkje gaan nemen op de Facebook-pagina van Rabbit Rabbit Creations en ik volg je nu op instagram.
