Welcome to the blog, Little Buddy!!
I just organized a bunch of my photo
mess collection on my computer and was devastated to realize that I had almost no video of this little man from the past year! Then it dawned on me that they are all on my phone. Whew. In fact he is the star of the show on my phone's sd card. BUT. I made it another 2017 goal to get out my big camera more and take photos and videos of my kiddos, because I just like having better lit photos than my phone can produce. Especially of this little one, who as of late, seems to be growing right before my eyes!!
Turns out, I just so happened to finish up a little outfit for him last night, so I took advantage of our little photo shoot to benefit the blog as well ;)
I finally sized him up to the next size in the Cuff Pants from the first time I made him several pairs, over a year ago! This pattern gets a lot of mileage, Woo! But really, so does the Rowan Tee. This is actually the first Rowan I've made for him, but he's been in the same size Safari Raglan (also a TT pattern, and the sizing is the same) for over a year as well and the sizing is still great for him.
Both patterns are made in size 12-18 month. For the next Rowan Tee, I will narrow the neckline. I'm not sure if it's because of the fabrics I chose, but it is plenty wide on him.
Both fabrics I used are from LA Finch Fabrics. The pants are a french terry remnant that I built an order for, just so I could snatch it up! The shirt fabric is an absolutely scrumptious baby rib knit. It is seriously so thick and soft, I just want to snuggle up with him in it! And smoosh his cheeks. But that's every day anyway, so...
The neckband ribbing is one I've had in my stash for ages. I love the pop of color against the near neutrals so much!
