It’s very possible people expect me to give a handmade gift at birthdays and births.
But it’s one of the few certainties in life that I expect it myself.
So when Liam, my niece’s son, turned 3 in February, I made him a ‘small’ gift. This time I managed to do this, well within deadline!
Although clothes were requested, I did not make a piece of clothing. He already got that at New Year’s and I figured he’d be getting a bunch from everybody else! Besides, which strapping boy of 3 would like to get clothes!
Dinosaur fabric: stoffenspektakel
corduroy for the spikes: thrift store
pattern and tutorial: Running with scissors
Unfortunately, Liam wasn’t feeling up to wearing the tail at the time, but I hope he has played with it since.
Turns out I can’t keep up with the ‘pin it & make it’ – challenge every week. I did say I would ‘try’ 😉
Better luck next week!
