i’m way late on blogging this but i did sew it on day 5 of kids clothes week, so it’s getting labeled as such. we had friends coming into town last weekend and their little guy had recently turned one, so i had to make him something! HAD TO! but what to make?
i started with just the eye shirt, which was heavily inspired by this one i spotted on pinterest. pretty fun, right?
i drew the eyes and freezer paper stenciled them onto a 18-24 month short sleeved flashback skinny tee. i didn’t hem it because i ran out of black thread (ha!) but works as a casual/pajama shirt. the black is a basic t-shirt weight jersey knit.
but i couldn’t stop there…i made a pair of pajama pants too! there was some serious speed sewing here – i made this entire outfit in an hour and a half. this, apparently, is how mothers of 3 are able to sew – gotta take advantage of those naps and sew like the wind!
the pants are bedtime story pajamas in 18-24 months. i picked a larger size than i thought he’d need and figured they’d probably be huge on him (because my kids are so shrimpy that’s what i’m used to), but he’s a bit big for his age and they fit with just the right amount of growing room. i’m so glad i “sized up!” nothing worse than sewing a too small gift.
neither of his parents has red hair, but check this kid out! such a cutie. i have no idea how to dress a redhead but took a guess that he might look good in black, and he does.
the pajama bottom fabric is from Lizzy House’s Constellations line (pretty sure this print is out of stock online, I got it a long time ago) with kona olive bindings. i recently stocked back up on my beloved kona olive – i still maintain it goes with everything!
he’s gonna get ya!
aw just kidding. 😉
okay that wraps up my KCW sewing! didn’t upcycle anything in this outfit, but that’s okay. i’ll break my streak for this kid.
