Anyways, here's what I made yesterday.
Here's some Big Butt Baby Pants made out of my favorite material ever. Pattern found here. He needed a little extra in the rise with this pattern, but I made it a bit too much. Folding the waist down seems to help and I left the legs extra long in hopes that when he grows, the rise will work and the length in the legs will be good too.
I LOVE these pants on Kian. They are made from the arms of an old sweater. I didn't use a pattern for these, just folded a pair of his pants in half and used them as a guide to cut the legs wide enough. I thought a casing out of the sweater material would be too bulky so I just used the stretchy bottom rim of the sweater for the waist. It worked fine but AGAIN, the rise is wrong. The waist is a bit too loose but I think if I take a tuck at the back that will fix them and the rise will be good enough.
I used some remaining bits of sweater to make him this funky hat, which I LOVE. He loves it too. Its the first hat he voluntarily keeps on for any length of time.
Felicity fell in love with Kian's hat and requested one too so I whipped her up one from another old sweater. Hers is super funky, and we all love it for that reason. The hats took me minutes each.
3 year old approved. This is her hugging her hat while not having to remove it. She later napped with it on. That makes this Mama happy! It also made me happy when Logan requested an orange one. I didn't have any orange sweaters to repurpose so I'll have to keep my eyes peeled next time I get to go thrifting. I love when my kids request handmade things. I know many a kid who hates having to wear hand sewn things. For now, my kids thrill me by loving their Mama made stuff and requesting more.
