There’s exciting things happening in the Love Notions Pattern world. Kelly has joined Tami as an assistant designer and has just released her first pattern! I love working with Kelly and know she’s been after a great track pant pattern for ages. So it was obvious they should be her inaugural pattern.

The Thomas Track Pants are so full of options! You’ve got to check out Kelly’s ah-mazing cover pair. Pockets, colorblocking, and hem zippers make them perfect for your little athletes. They come in sizes 2t-14 and I’m thinking my teenage soccer players need some too!
Charlie asked for some cozy pajama pants and picked out this plush fleece for his first pair. After trying them on he declared them soooo soft and comfy and had to wear them to school that day. So they may have started out as pj’s but have become his go-to pants whenever they are clean. This is the basic no pocket, solid version. They’re a super quick sew and the perfect fit!
I made Charlie a couple Moto Maxx tops and he needed a pair of track pants to match too! This version features the cool colorblocking. I skipped the other bells and whistles which made these another quick sew. I used the much sought after oatmeal french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics with some olive heathered french terry (also from RCF but currently out of stock) for the accent. His top is also made with RCF cotton lycra jersey (so soft!).
Just in case you need the perfect top to go with your new track pants, I can’t recommend the Moto Maxx enough! I love being able to mix and match prints and that shoulder detail is too cool. Boys clothing can be boring but not with this pattern!
I’m so excited for Kelly to be joining the design team and to be dreaming up more boy patterns. I love sewing for this kid and know Kelly will do some fantastic things!
I’ll leave you with this gem. He’s pretty convinced that ‘matching’ means wearing head to toe of the same color. He just had to wear his new shades and I think he’s doing his best to intimidate you into grabbing this pattern! I know you’ll love it as much as he does!
