A few little things....

As I had mentioned on my last post, I have been busy finishing up some little projects for my little nephew (he tends to get a little spoiled).
This first one, pictured above, is a cute little hat that is super easy and quick to make. I used the pattern from Leila & Ben. I have actually made a few of these by now and it is my sister's favorite so he wears his often :)

I have gotten new labels and couldn't resist slapping one on there. Plus I love this picture since you can see all his cute curls!

I had created these cute little overalls by using one he already had to create my own pattern from it. I added two pockets for a little more pizazz. The little piping around the edges also helped them pop out of the cute seersucker fabric. He is also wearing a cute little backpack that I made for him.

Here is a better look at the backpack. Truth be told I made this one a while back but don't think I have ever posted about it. I just made it up as I went along. I am hoping to make this into a pattern soon so keep posted. It was surprisingly quick to make which is always a plus. The fabric used on the backpack is a Japanese linen cloth with little "hot dog" pups on it. My nephew LOVES dogs, he calls them Ti Ti, so I thought it was fitting for his first backpack.

The last thing I made for this cutie pie were these pants. I got the pattern from Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing book. They were super easy to make and the best part is that I got this fabric on super sale at my local fabric shop. These unfortunately fit him a tad big (can you tell?), but these are easily adjusted so after a little altering he will be able to wear these for a while. On a side note.... the backpack had to stay in the picture, taking it away from him was not an option (it must be hard to model at a year and half, haha).

I have had so much fun making these projects and since they are small they make me feel so productive as I practically crank out one a day.

How productive has your summer been so far?

take care mucho,
