Signature Style Week! I had a hard time with this one last season, so I was worried I wouldn’t be able to come up with one, much less two, signature styles! Turns out, it was easier than I thought. I stuck with what I love on my boys: Great patterns, changed up a little, with fun prints/sayings and sewn in a mix of neutrals and brights. So let’s dive on in :)
Both boys got Small Fry Skinnies (are you shocked? I don’t know why I even bother putting that pattern away. I have another pair cut out already…).
Tim got an Anytime At All Tee (soon to be released and shared early with Shauna’s permission), short sleeve, color-blocked, with a Yoda saying, cause it’s never too early to get that started.
He also got a modified Bimaa (like John’s from last week), which is seriously the hardest thing to photograph on a kid who can sit up just long enough for me to arrange the hoodie, back up, and focus the camera. And then he tips over.
I do love the little brown buttons. They give it an almost nautical feel, which I love.
His skinnies are in a blue stretch denim with a slight brown cast to them. I did fancy “M”s on the pockets (for our last name), but they don’t stand out as much as I had hoped they would. I don’t know how, but this little guy has turned into a tow head all of a sudden! Maybe it happened when I cut his hair – like an Anti-Tangled? But I digress.
John’s skinnies are a super bright green (thanks to our winter gloom, they don’t show up quite as bright as they really are) stretch denim from Joann’s.
He love all things cars/trucks/trains/vehicles right now, so he got cars on one pocket and a mountain road on the other. I lovelovelove how that little scene turned out! I machine-stitched the hills and used the ends of pins to add the blue dots to get the perspective.
Lil Papoose Moccasins (affiliate link) made from minky-backed suede with the seams going out and the fringe left off. Tim actually has a pair too that disappeared as soon as it was time to take pictures. John calls these his slippers and hasn’t taken them off for days – so that’s a win!
The Recess Raglan quiver shirt is probably my favorite of the whole thing. I made a freezer paper stencil using a mix of Silhouette cameo software, basic shapes, and freehand drawing.
It’s much easier to see when it’s not on him!
I blended a bunch of colors to get the fletching on the arrows and it turned out exactly like I had hoped!
John also got a Submarine Pullover, made out of Navy fleece, with a green knit (old shirt) for contrast on the placket and sleeves, and orange inside the hood and for the ladder stitch on all the seams and hems. It originally had pockets lined in orange, too, but I ended up putting them on backwards (Thor made me do it) which I didn’t notice til it was all done, so I just ripped them off. The end.
It has two dino buttons on the placket and two on the completely-for-looks button tabs. I love how they look on the original and wanted to keep them, but the fleece is way too thick to roll up without cutting off his arm circulation!
It wasn’t too long before I ran out of candy and started getting looks like this:
And then the backdrop fell on him.
The little model didn’t break character though! He stood there posing until I took it off!
Thanks for stopping by to see my look :)
