So, I was sewing up a quick little top for my daughter the other day. My son, who is two and a half, has begun to notice that I make things for his sister to wear. So he walked up to me and asked me, "Mommy, make me a dress too?" And he was caressing the fabrics folded up next to my table so sweetly with a look of longing only a little boy can muster. So I melted completely, obviously! Of course mommy will make you something (though probably not a dress)!! So I dropped what I was stitching and pawed through my new BOY patterns, and my stash of fabric (which is, sadly, mostly girly) and came up with this adorable little hoodie sweater.
I found a cute brown and blue lightweight sweater-type knit in my stash and bought a piece of blue stretch velour for trim and pocket.
I also decided to add sme fun elbow patches.
I love it. He loves it. And it has chipped away just slightly at the guilt I feel for always making girly fun dresses and skirts and tops for my little girlie-girl!
(sorry for the picture overload. He's just so darn CUTE!)
