It can be hard to come up with ideas when it comes to sewing for boys. Here is the first Christmas outfit I made for little C. when he was closing in on his second birthday.
The applique was done with a regular sewing machine. If your machine has a zig zag stitch then you can do this, too! SewMamaSew has a great tutorial on this technique.
Instead of using cotton fabric for Santa’s gloves and boots, I used grosgrain ribbon. It added a great dimension.
And since little ones are either crawling or running away from you, I choose to decorate the backside as well!
This pattern is the Johnny from Children’s Corner. I’ve made it up probably 3 dozen different ways (at least). Check out my tutorial for this pattern here.
Enjoy your holiday sewing!
That’s probably the cutest little Christmas outfit I’ve ever seen!
Thank you so much for saying that!
