I love the Fourth of July. It’s probably my second-favorite holiday after Thanksgiving and closely followed by Halloween ;) Katy has organized a super-fun Americana tour this week and I was so excited! Unfortunately, Tim got a stomach bug this weekend and as soon as he got feeling better, I got it too… You’d think I’d have learned my lesson about procrastinating til the last weekend by now! Oh well – better a little late than never at all, right?
I’ve been working on a boy’s briefs pattern for a while now (it’s not out yet because I decided to extend it to men’s sizes – this will be my first men’s pattern and it’s a little nerve wracking!) and made a red and navy pair for Tim. I did use white thread, so they are actually red, white, and blue. It’s a little hard to see in the pictures, but I think Tim is white enough to count ;)
He’s at that point where most of his poses involve copying Big Brother and today, Big Brother was mostly pointing and standing with his hands on his hips.
The cape is a simple self-drafted shape made from the same large tee shirt as the briefs and bound with bias tape. He will not take it off! The mask was a last second (literally) addition, so it doesn’t fit the best, but he pushed it up and has been wearing it as a headband instead.
We are like this close to being potty trained, but I really didn’t want to deal with any accidents during pictures. I should have taken the diaper off just before – I didn’t realize how much it was sticking out of the undies! Lol!
Be sure to keep an eye out for the release in a few days and a Happy Fourth sale on all Momma Quail Patterns! In the meantime, be sure to see all the amazing Americana being shared this week – I’ve seen some sneak peeks and they are pretty awesome! Tim will be watching to make sure you do ;)
