HAVE FUN and LEARN - Traffic Pants

The T-shirt with a slightly slimmer fit than usual is designed to be sewn from interlock knit. Johanna Ahlard designed the distinctive Monster Car print pattern and you find this nice knit on our Etsy Shop in three colorways. Contrast-color bindings add the finishing touch to the T-shirt.
These “On the Road Again” Bermudas, designed by Ruby Vegter from the Netherlands, were awarded an honorary mention in our design contest. Boys are sure to love them and probably wouldn’t like to take them off even for the night. The innovative traffic-themed pants with their traffic lights and pockets serving as car parks will help the wearer to pass the time for example on a long haul bus journey. 

The white road markings are created with pieces of twill tape and the traffic lights are appliquéd using fabric scraps in various colors. The shapes are bonded to the pants by means of double-sided fusible web before stitching. You can print out various traffic signs from our websites and arrange them on the pants together with your child.

To complete our Traffic Theme we designed five different sets of cute and educational pinback buttons. You find these one inch buttons here.
