All in all it was a good learning project. Before jumping in and trying to make a garment from the pattern up. Today’s plan is to get some tracing paper so I can trace the pattern I have for shorts. Bigger actually needs some more shorts. And I found a tutorial for making jammies from a men’s polo shirt. He needs some summer weight jammies too. Might need a trip to the thrift shop to get some cheap polos too – I don’t think the WeatherMan wants to part with any of his 😉
Now, for the reading portion of the post… Our trip to the library on Saturday yielded some awesome books for the boys. I think their favorite of the bunch was Fly High, Fly Low by Don Freeman. It’s a cute story of a pigeon who lives in the lower loop of the letter B in a sign in San Francisco. That, coupled with our field trip for the birds program at the botanical gardens, inspired a game of “mama bird” where the boys built themselves nests on the couch and sat on their “eggs” till they were ready to hatch. Then they ran around the apartment looking for bugs for their babies. They’re imaginative play has really taken off in the last couple weeks, it’s just amazing to watch 🙂
Linking up with at In the Heart of my Home 🙂 And enjoying all the projects and books over there.
