camper sewing extravaganza. The patch is just a wee bit big for the size of the bib, but that was the only intact camper I could find to cut out from my scraps. Not a bad use of scraps and $.25 overalls, really.
I was not sure how to dress a boy child for his birthday. Boy clothes seem to be overdressy or very casual--there is no "business casual" equivalent for boys--but I came up with this. I made a little pair of cuffed pants out of some nice, soft thrift-store sheets. I just traced around one of his store-bought pants for a pattern. Then I put his initial on a blank t-shirt with the same fabric. I thought about doing the number 1 instead, but then he'd only really be able to wear it once. It's an outfit that I think it going to be both cute and comfy, and I feel good to have taken the time away from house stuff to make something special for the birthday boy.
