boyish pink

As much as I love to make things, I rarely make anything for my own children. Two reasons. One, it is more fun to give presents than to show off your own child, and two, I have boys. Dresses are the most fun thing to make, and I don't really like the way a lot of "homemade" boys clothes look. Despite these issues, I wanted to make my boys something to wear on Valentines Day. Applique is easy, but I have done it a million times and wanted to try something new. My friend Emily used embroidery floss to stitch around the applique for her little girl's Valentine Day outfit, so I thought I'd give it a try. Why not? I stole some design ideas off of Etsy and voila, my boys can now be festive. They aren't even close to flawless, but I like them anyway. Oh, and I was bored one night and couldn't sleep, so I made one for my precious nephew-by-friendship, Lincoln, while catching up on some DVR. I was a little worried about coming up with ways to make pink and red look masculine, but I think I pulled it off. Can't wait for love day with my three men. How blessed am I?

Steph these are so adorable (and boyish!) You did so well. I don't know how you did Lincoln's name like that! Love it! Also, I loved your last post of Parker singing so much words failed me when it came to leaving a comment. That boy is something else!
