Yes, we’re at that place already. Picture me pleading with him to just put the shirt on and mommy will give you a marshmallow. I’m starting to give away the clothes I make for him to his friends because it’s less trouble than trying to get him to wear it. Maybe the fact that it’s happening already means he’ll grow out of it faster? Please, I need hope here!
Anyway, the concept for this tee started with an article about Rachel Griffiths and her cute family in Cookie* last year. She is a fantastic actress. She also happens to have a baby girl with the same name…
Here’s a little mid-week update on what I’m up to…
The Flickr photo pool for the Big Butt Baby Pants is up! So if you’ve already made a pair, add your pictures and comments and strut your sewing stuff so we can all enjoy. Hopefully this pool won’t get tagged as inappropriate due to the ridiculous name. If you can believe this I actually had to change the name of the pattern in my shop from “Big Butt Baby Pants” to “Made By Rae Baby Pants” because my instant download emails were getting flagged by the major email hosts as spam. And it never occurred to me before that it would be anything other than funny/cute, but I guess “Big Butt” qualifies as…
Don’t fall out of your chairs…its a BOY POST! Yes, it has been soooo long. Someone even commented on my blog in May or June and pleaded “don’t forget the boys!” I haven’t forgotten, but somehow sewing for the baby girl just ended up dominating my summer. (And pssst: for a load of other fantastic sewing projects for boys, you can also check out the Celebrate the Boy posts from February 2010).
I probably split myself about 50/50 when it comes to using a pattern or making one up. But either way, I have always felt that it…

I am still a little exhausted from this past weekend but I had So. Much. Fun!!!
Blueberry Hill Inn was amazing, the surroundings were gorgeous and the other sewists who came to this weekend were wonderful. We had the best group ever. Of course as I did not attend the other weekends I have nothing to compare it to but I’m sure it must be so.
The Big Butt Baby Pants Sewing Pattern is a digital PDF sewing pattern for baby girls or boys. The pants feature a rear panel that adds plenty of room for diapered babies. They are designed to fit over cloth diapers but work great over disposable diapers too. The options are endless; you can add ruffles, pockets, fold-over cuffs or shorten them into bloomers, capris or shorts. Instructions include directions for ruffled rear panel and fold-over cuff. With so many possibilities for…
This is so typical Rae. I am poised to make this Big Butt Baby Pants pattern available and despite the oodles of samples and measuring I have done to get to this point, I am currently having my classic anxiety that this is all not going to work. Specifically, I think my sizing may be off for the 18-24 month and 2T sizes.
SO…I’ll put this out there in hopes that someone can help me out with this: if you think you could pattern test for me one of those two sizes, leave a comment letting me know what size you’d like to try and then shoot me an email so I can send it to you this evening. Ideally you would have a child…
I’m almost falling asleep at my computer today. I’ve been staying up too late at night reading The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and I finally finished it last night but I’m paying for it today. Headachey, tired.
We’ve had a great week with lots of friends over to play and going to friends’ houses…every day in fact. Yesterday we went to Karen’s house (her E and my E are the same age…so much fun!) and later in the afternoon I had a photo shoot with what I hope will be the last…
