Bright Boys' Clothes
Well, its been ages since I've posted pics of anything. I made these for my boy ages ago at the beginning of winter, when people were complaining that boys' clothes were all such dark or boring colours. He wears them heaps.
The painty top is hemp/cotton fabric that he painted himself (the sun effect paints) and then I sewed up. The other top is from fabric that I bought at a US online fabric store and is great quality.
The pants are very simple style in chenille. They are from old beadspreads. Learnt from experience that its best to put on a hanky pocket or two, so they're done in patches (partly for look, and partly because of the bulkiness of the fabric) - from a different chenille beadspread.
