Debbie's 5x5 #5

It can be a lot of fun to sew for girls - tons of fun fabrics, ribbons, laces, styles, etc.

Boys?  Not so much.

I did find some cute 'boy' fabric when I was in Idaho last month.  The line is "Backyard Baby" - and it was love at first sight.
I plan on making a short sleeved, collared shirt for Henry out of the top fabric "Backyard Party".

I haven't decided what I'm going to do with the 'Ant Maze' - but I'm happy to have it!

I made some overalls for Henry to wear with the shirt I plan to make.  They're pretty cute...and might actually come close to fitting him in about 6 months. Or 8.
I'm not technically 'done' - I still need to add 4 buttons (two at the top and two on the side cargo pockets) - I plan on buying some buttons this afternoon - but I might not get them on today due to date night.

The overalls looked ginormous on Henry - so I added a bit of elastic to each side.  I drew a chalk line and then stretched the elastic while zig-zagging (I worked my way out from the side seams). The overalls are still huge, but hey, it's better than being too tiny.
