I want to share another super cute pattern from Anna Marie Horner's book Handmade Beginnings. I picked out the fabric and my super sewer mother-in-law put them together.
They are so incredibly cute that I wish there was a pattern for Thom's size. But I doubt he would wear it. He's getting pretty picky these days about what's cool and what's not. I'm not too pleased about this new development.
Wondering what the kids are holding? Lobster buoys. My in-laws took a trip to Maine and they came home inspired to have the grandkids paint their own buoys. My father-in-law carved each child their own. I must confess. I had to paint one too. They are so much fun. We hang them on our fence.
It was damn near impossible to get the kids to stay still for photos yesterday. I started sweating and the photo session had to end.
This photo wasn't taken on a nature hike. It's in my backyard. Things are a bit on the wild side right now. Believe me, it's the least of my worries.
Thanks Mom for making these super cute and special coats. And for coming up with fun projects to do with the kids like paint buoys. I love that my kids are growing up surrounded by art and creativity. They will become crazy art people just like us.
