Now for the main attraction. Today I have a newcomer to the sewing blog scene. Amanda from Heartland Happy is very talented, and I have a feeling her blog is about to BLOW UP! Take it away Amanda!
Hello, I’m Amanda from Heartland Happy. I am so excited to be a part of Calling All Kids! This series is such a fun idea and it has really made me think outside of my normal box! Earlier this month I made a dress for my daughter that is outside of her normal wardrobe, which she adores. Alida was so kind and included it in a round up from a Saturday Linky Party. Thanks again! 🙂
Today however I’ve got something for my little guy. He’s a pretty typical little boy, into wheels, destruction and cats. Yes, he’s loved cats for a long time! It’s by far his favorite animal. So I wanted to incorporate cats into a summer outfit for him.
I love prints and so I decided to play with that element of traditional boys clothes rather than with colors. If you see prints used in boy’s clothing it is usually trucks or monsters or space stuff. Which are all great, and we definitely have some items with those things on them. I just thought cats could be fun!
For the tee I used Rae’s skinny tee pattern, love that one too! The fish on the front is just a blown up image from the cat print that I thought was perfect for a freezer paper stencil.
I love how this turned out and am looking forward to him wearing it outside when it is warm enough, probably warmer than the 50 degrees it was here today! I snapped these pictures in about 5 minutes today before bringing him back inside!
