There’s even a great spaceship on the bum!
When I was designing these, I was going to just do the spaceship on the back. Then I decided to add the spaceman on the leg, and I was going to do the shorts all gray. I was thinking about Alida’s post about being kooky and taking your designs a step farther, and decided to take mine the next step by adding the green stripes and switching up the cuffs. It was the best decision because I LOVE these shorts! If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
