My friend Catrine is Dutch, (like, actually born and raised in Holland). Her little boy is celebrating his 1st birthday this weekend, so here’s what I’ve made for him:

This onesie is still drying, but I’ve used freezer paper to stencil the Dutch flag (I do know how to spell the word white, but the “e” is covered by the side strip of freezer paper…just FYI)

then I made a cute pair of pants, with some felted wool remnant pieces, and lined them with a mans shirt…

I used scraps of each to applique a matching tie onto a shirt.

I think my favorite part of the pants is the patch pocket on the side… I still need to sew the button on, but look:

It’s from the button placket on the front of the men’s dress shirt I used for the lining/waistband.

Isn’t that cool?!?!

anyway, hopefully he/his parents likes the gift… I forgot to make a little gift bag, guess I still have that to do…
