I should probably just show them this picture. Obviously, some things (many things, if we're being honest) fall by the wayside. Sweeping up my scraps after sewing-- well, it's just not that high on the priority list, you know? (Do you see what he's doing? He's CRAWLING! Six months, one week and 2 days... just one day later than his big bro!)
This is what I was sewing: a Daddy-shirt re-fashion. It didn't go all that well. I a) did not use a pattern, even one I traced out onto newspaper beforehand and b) didn't measure the baby or the pieces before I cut them out. So it took hours and hours and was much, much too small. I'm still working on this one, though. I love all the cute re-fashions of menswear for girls, but as a mama to boys, I'm sadly aware of how few cute things are out there for boys. I'm here to remedy that.
Do you care if I plug Hoot Baby one more time? Oh, what the heck. Check us out here!
