Bikes & Boys

I was at the Hob Lob yesterday, making my usual yarn rounds
And happened upon some great super soft fleece bicycle fabric
Along with a matching chevron
(Husband is a bicycle enthusiast)
So I decided that littlest dude needed a new baby blanket.
Then eldest dude insisted upon needing pajama pants.
This is what came of it!
Next time I will be using a pants pattern, however!
(And perhaps next time I won’t have to stand with a sleeping baby
in the Ergo-baby-carrier whilst using the sewing machine!)

And since my sewing machine was already out,
I upcycled a weird halloween raven shirt I had thrifted for a different project I never did
And made that into a fun little beanie.

So needless to say,
My house has fallen apart in the meantime!
But this was fun, so it all evens out.

My Human Hat Model

Even though this was right before his nap,
He was all in for doing a quick beanie shoot for me.

These are adult hats,
But for a 4 year old, his nog is pretty large
So he’s not totally swimming in them
And I think he looks like a cute little hipster boy.
The painting he’s in front of is by Eric Wolever
