I am a proud boy mama. As much as I enjoy a good ruffle every now and then, my signature style is definitely boy stuff!
And these boys are just so cute, I can’t help but make cute things for them! On the left is my almost-three-year-old, John, and on the right is his best friend, Tasha’s three-year-old, Miles. Quite convenient that our kids are best friends, huh? The baby’s are engaged…
First up we have some Submarine Pullovers in sweatshirt fleece. It’s from Girl Charlee and the softest stuff in the world!
I freezer stenciled a London guitar on Miles’ and the words “Aim High” on John’s. They both go the whole way under their arms:
To the backs:
The guitar is definitely my favorite. And of course, he’s a size bigger than John so he’ll get this back eventually. Ulterior motives? Nonsense.
I also added to each a zip welt pocket, a zipper in the left front shoulder instead of the placket, and a tall collar that closes with elastic loops over buttons.
And the shorts. Small Fry Skinnies. No way! Yes way. These are like my twelfth-ish? They are the second and third time I’ve made the shorts and this time I added a contrast panel in the back.
You can see the pockets here, too. They are also British flags, centered over their left pockets and extending onto the right. I was just going to do it on Miles’ but ended up liking it so much I had to do it again on John’s!
Their tees are Anytime At All Tees and pretty much sum up their personalities!
Miles’ says “Long Live Heroes” and is gray and black colorblocked with a little interest over the shoulders (you can just see in his front shorts pocket that I used the chevron there, too). And John’s has a T-Rex on the pocket and says “Destroying everything seems like the best option”.
I extended the gray to the back of Miles’ shoulders and really like how it turned out! Kind of superhero outfit-y.
I did gray on the back of John’s shoulder too, but going all the way to the side seam (this is one of the options in the pattern).
I love how John is dropping some funky beats and Miles is like “Buddy, you need to get that checked out.”
And of course, any time you take pictures of two rambunctious three years olds, you get the good pictures like these:
These are some of the very few that came out in our outside shoot. Mostly it was too cold and they were distracted by the dirt.
And then you have the… fun… ones like these:
Notice it’s mostly the “destroy everything” child causing the problems? You’d never know he’s such a good model when there’s no one else around!
I hope they made you smile like they make me :)
