Busy, busy

Yes, I'm a bit busy right now, because my niece is visiting me. For a short week. With her 10 months old son. How can you resist a little boy always smilling at you? I can't. I spend my days smilling back at him.
Although we tried very hard, we could not find shorts for this little man. He is between two sizes.
As yesterday was very windy, we decided to stay home. While mother and son enjoyed the sun in a sheltered place in the garden, I went through my patterns and fabrics stash, and made those in the afternoon.
The white one is a serious one, in a jean fabrics, with pockets on the back. The other two are more fun. Some might say that wearing sun glasses is recommended :-)

The first one took me some time, in fact the time to figure how to combine two sizes in the same pattern. Once this was achieved, cutting and sewing was done in a few minutes.

10 months is such a beautiful age. I'm sure he looks very handsome in his new handmade wardrobe - well done!

I think it is wonderful you have the ability and inclination to whip up something so useful for your nephew! However bright his shorts, his smile is surely the bigger draw. Enjoy that darling 10 month baby!
