Project Run and Play sew along- Week #3 BOYS!



It has been a super crazy week. We have been dealing with freezing weather, sore throats, throw-up, and fevers. How on earth I've sewn anything is beyond me, and I have actually sewn a ton this week. I've had a little bag filled with already cut shirts to refashion for Jude. Here's all the little shirts I made for him.



I just used another one of his shirts as a pattern and made them all a little bigger so they will be more for the summer. The 2 long sleeve shirts are of really light-weight knit so they wont be super hot either.

After seeing the entries from Project Run and Play, I couldn't get over Max California's entry. I loved the color combo and the circles. I just had to make something with those colors!


I had some black sweat-shirt knit  in my stash and thought an extra sweater would be perfect. I used a pattern from Ottobre Design magazine Summer 2011 to be the base of the sweater. The only real change was making pockets and then adding some decorative stuff. :D








For the pants I used some stretchy canvas fabric and based the start off Peek-a-boo Patterns Shop Skinny Jeans. I widened the legs, added patches and contasting stitches. I also love that they are super light-weight. :D





I had to roll them up since I made them bigger and this is my first kid that's more torso than legs! 
Then I knitted a hat since his somehow keep getting misplaced. 


Jude didn't like the hat though and kept trying to pull it off.




This was not the greatest of photo shoots. We mostly got these looks:



And here's a couple in two more of the shirts:









 The last one I was super lazy and just tried it on over pj's. :D

Yay for most of my unfinished projects done!

I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with for boys week. :D

    1. lol Since everything was pre-cut, it didn't take me long to sew them up. It did help that my husband could hold our baby while I did it. :D I really hope we don't have another week like this ever again though!
