It's a little big for Walter now, but that just means he'll get more wear out of it. The airplane on the front (Walter loves airplanes!) was made using a freezer paper stencil. I've wanted to try this for a while now, and this shirt seemed like the perfect canvas. These stencils are so easy and fun! (There's a tutorial on Made.) And they're kind of addictive, too. I've got many more stencil ideas in mind – animals and dinosaurs and rockets, oh my!
I liked that first hoodie so much, I went right ahead and made another. I slimmed it down for a closer fit on our lanky boy. The pattern was really easy to modify.
I just love these shirts! They are so cozy – they make me want to snuggle Walter even more than usual. I think I'm going to try a pants pattern next. 'Cause a little boy needs some cute sweats to kick around in.
Somewhat related: I never realized how many airplanes flew over our house until Walter came along. Every time he hears one he yells, "Airplane!" and searches the sky to see if he can find it.
