These are Christmas shirts. They were made from a puppy and Christmas tree print. The boys wore them to their school Christmas parties and the other kids loved them! It's amazing how such a little thing can make them so happy. I have to be careful though - the sleeves on the twins' shirts were too short. I made a note so when I do their next shirts they will have long enough sleeves.
The requisite Christmas jammies, this time in Christmas Ooga Booga and bamboo velour. The pants are way, way too long, and the boys have a blast schlepping around in them. I wanted to hem them but Noooooo.... they like them too long. Silly kids!!
They try to behave, really they do....this is grass giraffe and gray giraffe on cotton interlock, and Patrick has a knit with a teddy bear line on it. I thought I had made him a giraffe onesie. Apparently I was wrong. I'm going to make him a shirt like his brothers have as soon as I get a second to breathe. The layered look is an idea I tweaked to fit my own style. I don't sew two sleeves, one over the other. I do mine differently.
The hat/scarf/mitten combos....Patrick's is green, Kenny's is camo, and the twins have the royal blue. One has gray on the mitten palms and a gray hat band; the other has black. The scarf sets, except for Patricks, match their coats. I didn't have red for Patrick. I have some now and I just might make him a set. Maybe.
I made these for Kenny. He came over one day and had an accident. The trouble is, I make them for him to wear and bring back....and he never does. He tells his brothers I made them for him to keep. What a stinker!
Another pair of Kenny undies. He took these home too. Same pattern as above, different style - no fly.
Now these I made for Stanley. He spent the night and forgot his clean underwear. They are from the Ottobre 4/2004 issue, pattern #37. They whip up incredibly fast; I really like this pattern. I'll be making more of them. This is kinda what Alex's boxer briefs will look like when I make them for her. I just need to kinda merge this pattern with the girls' undies pattern in the same issue.
I made this outfit as an extra in case a grandson came to visit or spend the night and needed clean clothes for whatever reason. Kenny swiped these, too. He took them home and I haven't seen them since. He's a little stinker. He knows I love them all to death and would do anything for them, and that's why he keeps swiping the stuff I make.
On to the next entry....
