It's Kid's Clothes Week again and this week has been about the baby. Last time around the three older siblings all got wearable clothes, while poor Video Game was left with a half finished romper. :( To rectify this terrible injustice, the baby got the benefit of all my sewing effort. And what a benefit it was.
|Most of the pictures are fuzzy because this little boy is always on the move.|
I was able to squeeze the hoodie out of a fat half of the fur print. When I saw the fur fabric and its coordinates I knew the were going to be a hoodie with chocolate chip lining and pockets with a pair of pants. Taking the extra time to make a bite mark out of the cookie pockets was totally worth it.
|The picture is dark, but you get the idea. And, yes, those spots on the pocket are splatters of food.|
Simply Sweats and Shorts pattern from Dandelions n' Dungarees. It's a great pattern for basic pants. I also made these long enough to grow into for a while. With any luck he'll be able to wear these next year too. Fingers crossed.
|His smile kills me.|
|Cookie eating is serious business.|
|He's still a bit of a wobbly walker and is just now making the transition from mostly crawling to mostly walking. I am not okay with this.|
|And down he goes.|
|"Want a cookie? They're super yummy."|
I hesitate to show the next project. As darling as the cookie monster outfit is, it's got nothing on his Halloween costume. The pattern is so far out of print that it's not even listed with the out-of-print patterns, which is really a shame because it's so stinkin' cute. I used minky, fleece, and felt from JoAnn. And....well this little costume speaks for itself. I apologize if you go cute-atonic (description at 1:13, but the whole thing is fun to watch). Here's my little organ grinder monkey:
|Again with the walking? STOP GROWING UP!!!|
|Next time I'll put the hood elastic on at the bottom instead of on the placement line|
|And then there's this face. My monkey is cuter than your monkey. :)|
