his spring racing jacket
It’s about time I introduce you to my ultra cute nephew, Grant.
I can’t believe he’s almost 6 months old already!
Now that I’ve lured you in with some baby cuteness, on with the show…
Well, Grant was dedicated to his church a few weeks ago and of course I had to make him something. I found this super cute race car fabric on Superbuzzy and knew it would be perfect for him since his dad (my brother) is a auto cross super star.
I figured Grant would need to keep snug and warm when he’s out cheering on the track this spring, so the Baby in the Hood Jacket from Anna Maria Horner‘s Handmade Beginnings was just too cute to pass up. I’ll be honest, I actually waited and waited to make this, it looks pretty complicated, doesn’t it? Well, the directions are just awesome from Anna Maria, and so it was lots fun to sew up! I threw in a mix of polka dots, a solid yellow and some Greenfield Hill by Denise Schmidt. I was so excited when I finished.
I ended up making the 12 month size and I think it’ll be just right for him through spring (hopefully, that is if he doesn’t bust out a big growth spurt).
I decided to pair the coat with some fun wooden race car toys I found from Green Bean Toys on Etsy. I love finding local etsians, especially with cute toys like this. I even bought some for our house.
Glad we could help celebrate your special day Grant, we love you! Oh and Happy Birthday to your mommy today. yay!
