Funky chicken trousers - first patchwork

Hi ishers

This is my first attempt at patchwork and the second pair of trousers I have made. My little boy seems to like them but his teenage brothers have asked me to never make them clothes! They are reversible as I thought they would be nicer lined - the other side has one red leg and one purple. I am quite please with myself (is there a smug smiley?)

ooohhh you clever lady! Do you do them in grown up size too?
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
