Sew happy…

it’s just THREE days until we leave! And to celebrate…during nap time today—I sewed THREE outfits for our little guy. I was having trouble finding clothing that worked well for 50-70 degree-ish weather. I wanted to dress Isaac in layers…so I was thinking onesies, pants and sweaters. Couldn’t find much since it’s HOT and June here in the South…so I decided to make him things instead:) Who says boys can’t have custom outfits just as cute as the girls?! I have about 3 more to make…but thought I’d share a sneak peak of what I got done today:)

Ok…so I know Richard is going to say this next one is PUSHING it for his boy…but I just couldn’t help the giraffe print…

On a side note—Carter’s onesies are WAY thicker and better than Gerber. Sorry Gerber. The stripes one is Carters–the other 2 are Gerber. After the kids wake up from naps, I’m off to buy more Carters onesies to replace these 2 Gerber ones. The Gerber ones are practical for sleep (to thin for my taste to wear by themselves)–and the Carters are thick enough to wear alone.

Have a great Tuesday!!! Can you believe it?! Just 3 more days!!!

You did that during nap? I could maybe pull that off if naptime was FIVE YEARS LONG!! Great job and I agree that Carter’s has better onesies. I can’t believe only three more days… yay!

50-70 degrees isn’t cold, though, is it?

Wow–those outfits are amazing! Can not believe that you leave in 3 days! Will be glued to the computer (more than usual)! 🙂

I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I think I know how you feel. My husband, mother, and I are leaving in six days for China to adopt our 18 month old princess. Our trip will be eighteen days and I’m feeling very anxious about being away from our three sons for such a long, long time… Our boys are older than your babies, but I don’t think it matters, we still miss them so much. The packing is daunting and the fear of the unknown is unsettling, but I trusting that God will meet us there… Congratulations on your sweet Isaac and may you all come home safely.

Those are PERFECT!! Love them!. and you are correct with the onesies thing.. although- they thin gerber ones do stretch to expanding belly sizes. Good luck on your trip. not sure how I found your blog but glad I did!

Laura - June 22, 2010 - 9:49 pm

you amaze me!! can’t wait to see sweet Isaac!

I just got caught up reading some old posts and wanted to share that my son was also classified as severely malnourished- came into care with full kwashiokore. Feel free to contact me for support or help or just info. Don’t worry!!

I agree….Carters are WAY better to sew on! Kohl’s also has a brand (First moments, I think) that are really great to applique on as well. SO cute!

1. Those outfits are SOOOOOOO cute!
2. I am slightly ashamed by how much you seem to accomplish in a day – and how little I do! 😉
3. I can’t believe you leave in 3 days!!!!
