Happy Birthday!

My son celebrated his fourth birthday yesterday, but I got all the presents!!  (OK, maybe he got a few, but I know y'all aren't interested in the expansion of his Thomas the Train and Veggie Tales collections.)
My parents came for the day, which was great in and of itself, but Mom brought me a bag full of patterns that a friend of her's had given her!  They were left over from her garment sewing days, which appear to have been in the late 80s or early 90s...  There were a lot of cute kids patterns though.
Here is the haul.  Most of them won't fit my kiddos for a couple of years, but they've been waiting this long...
This one is my favorite.  I love the wrap pinafore.  It reminds me a little of an Ottobre.

Then we got the mail, and I got a package from Amber!
She had two copies of this sweet little pattern and she sent me one!  How sweet was that!!  Thanks so much for thinking of me!  My ultrasound is in two weeks, so I'll let you know then whether we'll be making the sweet little pink dress or the blue sailor suit...

  3. Love the last pattern. Just a note though, when I tried to make it for my little boy, I found that it ran HUGE! I made the 0-3 month size, and eventually had to cut the top off to make shorts and he wore them at 12-18 months.

  7. That was a wonderful birthday present because little kids patterns really don't ever go out of style. They can easily be reworked!

    Happy Birthday!

  9. Happy Birthday to your son! Love new patterns. I have that last one of the little sailor outfit. My grandson won't ever have a sailor suit though, his dad would never allow that! He dresses like his dad in flannel shirts and jeans, etc....
