For as much as I like to make stuff, I’m always behind on new baby gifts. Especially when it comes to boy babies. There’s plenty of adorable and inspiring boy stuff out there, it just takes a little extra effort on my part since I’m generally in a girl-sewing mindset. So my first project for KCWC is a little outfit for one of the baby boys on my delinquent gift list.
And a shirt:
I used the Oliver + S Bedtime Story Pajamas pattern for the pants, but decided to forgo the kimono top for an appliqued t-shirt (less time consuming for me and might get more wear anyway). Using Kristin’s paper airplane applique template saved me even more time – I didn’t even have to draw the thing myself! I added a little motion stitching (inspired by these cute shirts) with embroidery floss.
The paper airplane fabric is from Sarah Jane’s Children at Play line, and the yellow crosshatch is Haybale by Riley Blake.
I bought two plain t-shirts at Target – one got the paper airplane, and the other got a number 1 for my nephew’s first birthday.
and ready to give away!
