Making It Match

Hello, and happy Monday!  I hope you all had a GREAT weekend!  I've been super busy trying to get the fam ready for a 10 day trip to Alaska!  I'm so excited, but also a little nervous since I'll have my nine month old, Kason, in tow.

Well, Alaska weather is definitely different from Texas', so I bought a ton of warm clothes for him in February on clearance.  I was able to get over 20 items from The Children's Place and Target for about $100!  What a steal, huh?  A few of the pants didn't have matching shirts, so that is what I've been doing...making shirts to match them.

Take a look at these cutie, plaid pants.  I loved them because they were summery looking (most winter gear is well, wintery...dark colors and heavy).

I went to Babies R Us and found a pack of long sleeve onesies and decided to jazz them up to match the pants.  I used the little dinosaur patch as inspiration, so I cut up some old, khaki pants, found an image online, used a freezer paper stencil to paint the dinosaur (I used the tutorial from Holy Craft HERE), and then hand sewed the patch onto the onesie!  Too cute!


Here is another one I made to match a pair of camo cargos.  My little guy is going to be stylin' in his one of a kind onesies...made by mom! :)


Wishing you a happy week!  :)

  2. What a great idea. I love matching outfits. I have a nine month old boy too. Good luck taking him. I'm sure he'll be fine. They seem to go with the flow at this age! And they love to see new things! ~Monica

  5. You did a great job. I miss the days of being able to do that kind of stuff ( although I was not nearly as creative as you have been!) I'm lucky when my 17 year old is willing to be seen in the same mall, far less the same store with me lol. Actually, he's pretty good since I'm paying.
