Another little robe was added to the mix this week - this one for my littlest boy. These robes were originally intended to be given on Solstice, but you know, things happen...tired pregnant Mamas must sleep...children are forgiving, and there's always room for another fresh layer to be added to the winter warm wear, even - perhaps, especially - in February. Thank goodness.
Harper's was made from this vintage sewing pattern - I skipped the buttons because I knew they'd just be too finicky for my two year old to bother with. Pockets, on the other hand - essential play material. Please tell me, though, how I am to resist searching for slippers such as those on the pattern cover? Because really now, they are SO cute and ridiculous (for a two year old) at the same time.
(I'm sorry that I don't see a maker on the flannel - it was purchased quite some time ago, locally.)
Because Harper loves, follows, adores and wants to be just like his big brother TaTa (that's Calvin, if you don't speak Harper), he was thrilled to see this bathrobe - so similar to his big brother's - for him. Which of course thrilled his sewing Mama because it means he wants to wear his robe all the time. Most especially whenever his big brother is wearing his.
I've decided there isn't much cuter in all the world than a two year old baby boy with a new haircut and rosy red cheeks toddling around in his bathrobe.
Except perhaps this.
(Don't you worry, I've got two more bathrobes on deck.)
