to snuggle

to snuggle

Little M loves music - dancing and giggling and everything - and he loves to snuggle. So cute! The Snuggle Softies pattern seemed just perfect to make him a little softie with a music box inside. Wonderful clear instruction, it was a breeze to sew. The music box is sewn into the belly and is waterproof enough to hand wash the softie. I picked several velours and some jersey knit from my stash, which felt the cuddliest. The brownish grey and the orange snout where picked first and the blues made for a wonderful contrast. The scarf as suggested by the pattern with its orangeand brown is just the perfect finishing touch.

Guess which little boy was pretty pleased to say the least :) Me too. I was a fun project plus I can check one more item of my long to do list.

The sewing for boys continues with another T-shirt for little M. This time inspired by fall colors:


  • grey for all the short, grey, rainy and foggy days
  • still bits of blue sky here and there
  • purple berries
  • lots of orange, brown and red leaves

All there plus a lion for some fun since, heh, it's for a toddler. The lion is raw edge appliqued and will not fray as jersey does not. The grey jersey is a thicker quality that keeps nicely warm and the sleeves are actually repurposed including the hem and all from one of my older tees.

And looked what I've found just some days later in our kitchen (no stagging, I swear). Just the same colors. Fall is here.

sewing for boys

The last days I got a bit carried away with sewing for the kids between some stressful days. So far my boys have got some t-shirts and some pants. As I am a bit lazy typing today, I just leave you some pictures to enjoy.

This T-shirt for little M is hubbies favorite: Appliqued digger and stenciled "BRUMMMMM..." can't go wrong with boys.
