A vroom vroom birthday

Standard

And the actual birthday pants! My boy wanted a “vroom vroom” birthday. I made his pants out of a medium-weight blue stripe with the side panels and waistband made from this Boys Toys Cars Blue fabric. This is the same pattern as the pants in my last post, from the book Sewing for Boys. I made a simple applique for the blue t-shirt by cutting out an oval patch from the car fabric, fusing it on, then zig-zagging around it.

This picture shows the cute waistband, as well as the adorable dinosaur headdress and mitts his Aunt Molly made for him.

Now, a couple weeks out, he’s learned to hold that finger down while he’s giving us his age visual. Sweet boy.
