I have to admit that I do not sew as much for Finn as I do for the girls. He is very particular about what he wants (as he should be) and I do get wrapped up in polka dots and pink a lot.
But with the new Ottobre magazine I was definitely inspired to sew more for my Son and so this past weekend was spend getting this outfit together. Success!!! He loves it :o)
I did not just sew however. I also painted a little. It really is a shame that I do not paint as much anymore as I did in the past. I am still hoping that I will find the love for it again... And the lost confidence in my abilities. Enough about that though ;o)
So here, a great white shark painted on Jersey than sewn to the front of Finn's shirt.
The shirt is the "Otus" T-Shirt. I used my new Campan knit from Hilco.
Than I finished the "Veikka" outdoor pants. I am not super great at top stitching and my machine also decided to skip a stitch here and there. You can definitely tell they are Mama made, with Love!
And here everything together.
This is a really nice issue and I plan on sewing more from it. I do have some of the fabrics that are used in the magazine in the store. Such as the Busilis knit, Campan, and Busilis poplin.
I will get more in February!
Next up I will attempt some shirring when I sew a Shirt for Romy. Shirring works only occaisionally for me... I am still trying to figure out the best way.
