So another friend of mine had a baby boy. Pretty sure I haven’t made a baby-girl gift for about a year now! Statistically this does not bode well for me having a boy one day. Everyone else is hogging the boy statistics! hehehe. Does it work like that? Dont get me wrong I’m very happy for them, plus it means I get to make a variety of cute little boy outfits! This time I went with golf pants. I think they’re my new favourite boy thing. Aren’t they the cutest?
I used Dana’s tutorial and I went with a flat fronted style. I tried to get a bit of a vintage vibe going with the fabric. Paired with a little complimentary onesie and of course a little matching gift sack. Cute! I had high hopes of making a little matching cap but western power in their wisdom decided to switch my power off this morning – as I was finishing off the gift!! Acutally that’s how the hand embroidery on applique letter came about.
I had plans to button hole stitch around the letter but without power I had to hand embroider. Which I actually love, happy accident…. or something like that.
You might notice on the side there’s a little tag. I got my inspiration from See Kate Sew and DIY’d some of my very own labels to put on the things I make. I like the finished look it creates! Plus it will have the added bonus of helping Dad find the back of hand made leggings and things!
