I was going to do a "before" and "after" shot but my scissor hand has a mind of its own. Therefore you get the grey "before" and the black "after" but without any appliqué. Yes, I am currently addicted to appliqué. In a previous post I used it to patch trousers (still doing that, in fact I have a pair sitting next to me that need sewn) and the girls love the idea, and now want little pictures on all their clothes. The fact that these trousers were grey and black didn't impress them either, so we jazzed them up!
And now I'm going to do what I like to call "letting the crazy out." I probably shouldn't admit this was my craft project today, but I will. My daughter is a remote control freak.

The only problem is she has begun to lose it, and it takes us ages to find it again, and often we find it wedged in the back bottom of the couch. How it gets there, I don't even want think about. My husband decided that she needed a "remote control holster" which we both thought was hilarious. Funny enough to actually make. So here it is:
