Grandbaby

Well, the early ultrasound indicated boy and they have another one tomorrow to verify.  I could not wait any longer to make something, so I pulled out my Ottobre magazines and made jeans from 1/2005 # 6 baby jeans.  The top is 5/2006 #1 body suit.
I did not have enough fabric to make a full bodysuit, so it is a t-shirt this time.
Front – the “x”pieces are knee pads.

Here is the back:

I made a size 3-6 months but the jeans look a bit big.  I can adjust after the little guy is born!
I used a small tag on the back pocket, from the Sew4Kids email list days – a Lamington Lane label, I believe.  I need to check to see if they are still around.  I am just so thrilled how the entire outfit turned out.  Now to stock up on boy fabric, something new to my house.
Tonight we are celebrating my son-in-law’s birthday (the daddy) and I have wrapped this little outfit up for part of his present.  Chris wanted a gift card to Bass Pro for part of his present and the card is sticking in the back pocket.

Thanks all for your support on the issue from the previous post, it means the world to me.  I do think I had the URL posted incorrectly but a simple email to me would of rectified the situation.  I believe a kind sole at PR is going to take down one of the threads on the MIsc. section.

  4. I love those little jeans! I have the opposite situation as you, Lori. I have three sons, no daughters. So if any of my boys ever give me a granddaughter, I will enjoy sewing up girl things in every shade of pink imaginable!

  15. How adorable! I have 2 little grandsons, and I tell you-they have stolen my heart! You will feel the same about that little boy.

  16. That is really cute! Congrats on the little boy! In my experience Ottobre seems to run a bit wide sometimes. My kids were all really skinny when they were newborns (haven't changed much!), so some things wouldn't fit right out of the pattern magazine.

    As for your last post, some people have no social graces and instantly assume the worst. Obviously, you didn't need to link to their reviews as you have so many yourself. Sometimes links just don't work all that well and get messed up. Hope it all gets sorted out alright.
