PeeWee Fashion: Butterick B6238

Two years ago today,  I lost my brother Vernon to throat cancer. For months I was depressed. Actually for the first year and a half I wasn’t truly myself.  This year, I was determine to do something other than be sad.  I went to bed last night knowing that I was not going to work and I would put my energy into something constructive.  What is a better method of creative expression than sewing something for his 1 year old grandson?

Using a ultra warm fleece from @MLFabrics, I made him a slate and red fleece hoodie, slate ski cap and matching elastic waist pants for the upcominh  chilly season using Butterick B6238 from @McCallPatternCo. 

Here’s to you big brother. I miss you.  Rest assure that your grandson will be warm thanks to Auntie Tracy. 

Modifications:  None

Would I make it again?:  Yes, I intend on making this in orange sherbet and off white as a Christmas gift for a friends 4 month old little girl.

Difficulty:  Absolutely none.  I made this in one sitting.
