Henley for the Little Guy



I have been doing some sewing for me but took a break from my project and made the little guy a new henley.

I used Ottobre 0106 Baby Basics, an individual pattern.

This is the softest fabric and sewed like a dream.  It seems to be very popular and sells out quickly, but there are some other designs and colorways in this Jay-Cyn for Birch Organic Fabrics.

This is the best placket I have ever made, thanks to Singer Library Sewing for Children

What was the hardest part?  Well, after sewing for 4 daughtes, having the placket go the other way for a boy!

One more thing, little guy's dad loves this fabric,  he has family in Montana and loves the outdoors.  I did call this moose fabric when it come in the mail, I was corrected and told "No, elk!"  It is official, I now know the difference between elk and moose, at least on this printed fabric.

  1. When I saw it I thought what cute deer fabric LOL. Guess that shows I'm a mother of girl's too and don't know the difference between deer or elk either.
