I have to admit I’m a sucker for an East Coast brand! Many people know that Gryphen was born and spent her first two years living the East Coast lifestyle before being whisked off by Air Canada to Ontario. When I began my search for Hunter’s new shoes I turned to Etsy to see if I could locate someone local who handmade some badass shoes. Well turns out I found an amazing company, Lil Kingz; in the lovely Prince Edward Island! After a few messages we settled on an amazing aviation print and HU’s booties would be here in a few weeks! Everyday I’d check the mail to see if they might be early (you just never know with Canada Post) and sure enough they arrived 3 days early! I was beyond excited to open the package to get the first look at these little bad boys!
All I can say is I was NOT disappointed!! They turned out perfect. HU of course was super excited to no longer be wearing Gryphen’s pink Robeez and instantly was grabbing at the tongue.
With all the excitement over I decided to take a very close look at the quality of the booties to make sure they were up to my standards. I flipped the bootie inside out; all of the stitching is perfect! You can really tell that attention was given when the booties were created.
Looking over the entire boot I didn’t notice any flaws with the stitching and everything looks superb. I will defiantly be ordering another pair of booties for HU (and maybe Gryphen) from Lil’Kingz. Now where should we go to test these booties out??
If you’re interested in getting your own check out Lil Kingz on Etsy and get the behind the scenes look on Instagram!
I’ve noticed that at least once a week I’m making Gryphen some pants! I either use an old shirt that I’ve come across or some very adorable fabric I’ve purchased but she’s always getting new pants! Unless you’re shopping just sales or lower priced stores kids clothes can really add up. I want to share with you today my very quick way of coming up with a pattern for kids pants! I adore making different types of pants this way and slightly changing them to fit perfectly to my skinny long-legged Blondie!
Paper of any kind that’s durable
Scissors to cut paper
Marker or pen
Pants in the size you want to remake.
I roll out some paper and tape it to the table to ensure the paper doesn’t move while I’m tracing. Once it’s taped I trace around the folded pants creating one leg.
I like to write all the info on the paper so I can quickly identify the pattern later.
Measure the waist band. Then on the paper measure out and cut the proper size. I find if you try to measure the waist band it’s self you will get one that’s too small. Step 4
Once the pattern is completed I pin all the sheets together for safe keeping (and organization).
I love these little pants that I’ve created for the baby & can’t wait to try them on. I’ve made them to fit around 3-6 months and used an old pair of roots jogging pants.
Hope you’ve enjoyed learning how to make an easy pattern for kids pants! If you want to see any other patterns please leave a comment below 🙂
I’m very excited about this little project! After making an infinity nursing scarf earlier in the year for my sister-in-law it really had me thinking about what I’d like out of a nursing scarf. Since realizing that I’m in my third trimester now I’ve been starting to organize and prepare things for the baby (yes for this entire pregnancy I haven’t been focusing on any sort of time frame, just enjoying everything slowly happening to my body). Have you seen the Nuroo nursing covers? I fell in love once I watched the video and learned how versatile they actually are. Sadly though they don’t come in many colours so I went to work on deciding what fabric I’d love for my own.
Fabric – 70in long x 29in wide (I purchased 2 meters)
Thread to match fabric
Cotton Twill Tape – 60 inches
Snaps – 30 total/ 15 per side (I used my Babyville Snap Pilers & snaps)
Press and cut pre-washed fabric to length (70×29). The fabric I purchased was 58in wide, I was able to make two scarfs. Which was great!
Measure 1 inch, fold & press fabric. I find ironing the fabric assures a nicer seam. Once you’ve done that pin on the twill tape. Make sure to cut the twill take slightly longer.
Time to sew! I use two different colours of thread to ensure it blends nicer but you can do whatever works best! Sew the edges of the twill tapeStep 4
Here’s the fun part; attaching the snaps! This I found took the longest, mainly because Gryphen decided she needed to help. I spaced then just over an inch apart. I used a block plaid which made spacing VERY easy.
Since we don’t have a baby yet I’ve been wearing this perfect scarf on the colder days (which seem to be a lot). I can’t wait until the baby arrives so I can put this nursing scarf to work! With the left over material I made a fabulous infinity scarf for Gryphen & some bibdana’s for the baby. Once Gryphen seen my scarf she was asking where her’s was and so excited when I told her she had one as well, Nothing cooler then matching your parents when you’re 3 years old!!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our Nuroo inspired infinity nursing scarf project, we’d love to hear and see how yours turns out.
