This is Brandon. He is my cousin’s son who celebrated his 1st birthday last month. (:
For his birthday, I wanted to make him a little something and knew Brandon’s mama has had her eye on Birch Fabrics‘ Circa 60 Beach Mod line that I have in the shop, especially the guitar and camper prints. So, I pulled out Anna Maria Horner‘s Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby book and made the super easy, reversible “Quick Change Trousers.”
I seem to employ the whole it’s-okay-that-I’m-late-with-presents-because-I-made-it-myself excuse a lot. Fair rationale or me being lame?
Well, I think Brandon’s cool with his belated birthday gift so I’m going to stick with my conclusion that it’s a fair justification for now. Quick note to Shayna if you’re reading this: I have not forgotten about your wedding gift either, even though you got married over 3 months ago. . . xoxo
