I had to smile as he tried to put it on.
Here is my "sweet face!" There is something about having pockets that makes it hard not to put your hands in them!
I made him put his arms at his side for this photo. Needless to say, he did not give me any smiles!
Back to his happy state!
I have to say I really enjoyed sewing this Simplicity Sewing for Dummies pattern 2824. For those of you that follow along with me, you know that I have already sewn this pattern for myself, and said I would sew it again for my little man. Everything went much more smoothly this time, and the only change I made to my son's apron was to leave out the D-ring attachment. Instead, I made two neck straps, but took off about three inches to each strap so they wouldn't be too long to tie around. It worked out well.
As much as I love to sew, there was no greater joy for me in sewing this project than sewing it for my son and seeing his face light up with excitement to be such a receiver of the gift I gave! There just are no words for moments like that! I hope to have many more of those moments, until he no longer thinks my sewing creations are the coolest in the world!
I will put a more in-depth pattern review at the right if you are interested in this one. If you would like to see the apron I made for myself, see here.
Have a sew-filled week! Stay tuned as I continue to find more things to sew for the kids...
