Here's a little conversion that happened a few days ago...
"Mummy, did you make these clothes I'm wearing?"
"No, your Nona bought them for you."
"Oh, I thought you made them because they are really good. You're clothes are better than shop clothes."
Well that made me pretty happy! He's just turned six , so that is super cute that he has that perception of his handmade clothes. I'm sure it won't be for too much longer, when it starts to be important to have label's printed across your chest. I'll take it while I can! So here's his new winter hoodie.
I love this printed fleece, it's right down his ally. There's nothing he loves more (except for Lego) than drawing and designing houses. No kidding. My husband and I both do that for a living, so it's obviously a pretty strong gene we passed onto him. So when I saw this, there was no question that I had to have it to show his personality in his clothing.
The pattern is from Cucito Autumn 2011. I changed the original pattern slightly by wrapping the hood the whole way around the neckline and adding the contrasting panels on the shoulders.
