I had the pleasure of doing a sewing job for a friend this week. Making her sons first birthday outfit! She purchased the clothes and fabric, and I put it together.
It was a fun project, and he looked very cute in it today 🙂
After umming and ahhing about what to make a fresh little boy, I decided a super suit it was. Using a simple suit pattern, I picked some nice bright boy colours and appliqued away.
So, it has been a busy year. So busy in fact that I missed that a lovely friend was pregnant… and had the baby. I saw him yesterday, all pink and squishy at just a week old. Immediately I decided that I simply must make him something. And secretly (well, not anymore!) I love making boys clothes. Maybe its because I only have daughters? I hear many a woman complain about the simplicity and lack of range in boys clothes. Maybe true.. but when you can create your own, the possibilities really do widen 🙂
This is a great little pattern I picked up second hand. It is a simple pattern with the main body being one piece. Even though I have my own snap press, I love the simple zip down the front. It also comes in 4 sizes, but I decided that 6-12 months would be the best.
I didnt realise until I was putting in the crotch piece that while I had picked out a knit fabric from my stash, it couldnt really be classed as ‘stretch’, hence the gather in the bum. I decided to put a ‘N’ for his name, a wham star, and a lightning bolt (boys fart heaps right??!!)
I hope that they like it! I sure had fun making it 😀
