Let's Hear it for the Boy!

I totally have the Footloose song in my head now...

Anyway, I have been making some fantastically cute things for my boy lately!

Here's a few:

Toddler Sized backpack from Made By Rae.
Utterly fabulous.
We keep these in the car with small toys, crayons, etc to take into restaurants or other places where we need something to do for a bit.

I love Preston's with the little cars on it!
Peighton picked out her bright fabric of course.

I added a few outside pockets to the pattern and I left off the piping. 
I'm just not into piping.

The original pattern also does not include lining. 
I don't like that.
I don't want to see the seams.
So, I did add a lining which is a bit more difficult with the zipper but I made it work and I like it a lot better now. 

I also made one for our little cousin who has a birthday coming up.
I actually made this one first.
I figured practicing on Hawkeye fabric would be good because if I messed up I wouldn't be too sad about the runied fabric!!!!
But it turned out great! ;-)

Can't wait to fill it with some fun stuff for his birthday or Christmas!

Peighton thought she should model hers for me.

My absolute favorite thing I have made the past few days though is this fabulous shirt:

It means I love Iowa State Fair!!!
And we all know how I love "hearting" things...

I found the adult sized shirt at Goodwill for a couple dollars!
The pattern is from my new Ottobre magazine.
LOVING this magazine.
So many fun things to make in it I have a hard time picking something.

And a couple more quick ones:
Same pattern, but I added long sleeves.

And here I will show you that even I make mistakes.
I was trying to make sure all of the design fit onto the shirt and in the process the neckline just got too big.
So, yes there are a few puckers in it.
But I don't think Preston will complain and it will make a great jammie shirt!

So there you have it.
I love making cute stuff for my boy!!!!
