I had a pair of pants I wore whenever I worked with clay. Alas, they are now fit only for rags. I needed new pants. I went to the local Famous Name Chain store and bought a cheap batik. I used my 50% off coupon so I got really cheap batik. I made me a pair of scrub pants for clay. These pants are remarkably comfortable and allow me to use the potter's wheel as well as do a lot of bending as I'm lugging clay or dragging a glaze bucket over to the glaze table.
I tend to get glaze on me as well as the ceramic piece and glaze doesn't wash out. I thought the pattern of the batik would disguise at least some of the glaze splatter - at least for a while.
The close up is of the pocket. I truly cannot sew without using some of my fancy thread and some fancy stitches.
