PS-Birthday Suit

I know it's way past Griffin's first birthday, in fact he's now officially 13 months old.  But I forgot to mention his birthday outfit.   I had found this adorable madras fabric and had to do something with it.  I decided first to make Griffin a birthday suit....so he wouldn't have to be in his birthday suit. :)

                                       

I just whipped up a pair of big butt pants (they are getting easier and easier to make), and I sewed a "1" onto his white polo that is no longer really white, so I didn't really care if it got ruined.

An alternate title to this post could be, "I want to go outside, but my Mommie says it's raining so we have to stay in side and do a photo shoot."


I did let him out on the porch...to mow the rug....
 He loves to put gas in his mower, which he calls "ball" because of the wheels.....it's a stretch but they do look like balls a little bit!
 When the drool had soaked through his first shirt, I just popped on another polo that looks equally as cute with his new madras pants.
 ....don't know what this face is....
 ....or this one...
 ....I have an idea of what this face is, use your imagination....
....yup, you were right...and now he's uncomfortable.
 The only thing that could make it better is to go outside....
 But Mommie's not going to let me....



Anywhoo....since I had some leftover fabric I decided to make a birthday banner.  I traced the letters on to the back of the durabond adhesive, ironed it onto the fabric, cut out the letters and then ironed them on to some flags I had cut out of blue fabric (in hindsight I should have used a lighter color for the background, as the "happy birthday griffin" was a little hard to see). 
I used clothespins to attach the flags to a piece of ribbon and hung it in our porch with some balloons on either side.  It will definitely be reusable for each of Griffin's birthdays!
