Robot Boy

This semester is so much lighter at school that I am getting back into my sewing groove. I made this yesterday for my boy.

The pattern is from the latest Ottobre Design magazine.

For years, we have been teasing Oli that he has a “skipping button” since he skips a lot. Oli decided that the green button is his real “skipping button”. We pressed it many times this morning and it does, in fact, work. I can’t wait to see what his other buttons do. Good thing I sewed each one on firmly — I predict they will all get a bit of use.

Sunny Sewing

I haven’t spent much time with my machines lately. The children all have enough warm clothing and spring hasn’t sprung yet. I decided to force some spring thinking with a little spring sewing. A tropical dress for Mojo to wear on our vacation down South next month:
Hawai\'ian Dress

And for Oli, a lobster shirt for our vacation up East in late summer:

It’s still not warm and bright outside but the sewing room is starting to look a little sunnier already.
