My favorite 1 year old has his birthday today, but we went to his house last night to celebrate. For his gifts, I made a stuffed bear from a pattern that I got from a book and a reversible hat. Making the bear was a bigger pain than I planned. The darned thing would line up when I pinned it together, but when I actually sewed it together, it would get out of line. After undoing and redoing it a couple of times, I just made do so its nose turned out funny and its ears are out of line. Cameron told me it looks like an armadillo. The kids say it looks like a pig. Whatever it is, it was a pain in the you know what and it’s a good thing that Hudson is only one year old and doesn’t know the difference. I thought the reversible hat would be the tricky one, but I whipped that thing up in no time from a tutorial I found here and think it turned out cute. At least you can tell what it is supposed to be anyway.
Happy Birthday Hudson!

I guess technically they are scooters, not bikes, but birds and scooters didn’t sound as cute. I made this set of coordinating onesies, burp cloths, and a bib for a friend that is having a baby girl this summer.
