another first




many first times for little bb and myself...
and this is another *first*
my first handmade top for little bb

many times i had taken the materials out, planning to make clothes for little bb when he was still in my tummy...
but each time, i ended up putting the things away....
mainly because i really didn't know what to make when i didn't know what he was going to look like / be like...

and then since his birth, i was too busy / lazy with this and that,
that i only finally had time to make a top for him last weekend.

i made a few mistakes with the measurements....
the sleeves turned out to be a bit tight... but luckily his little arms can still go through them... 






i was very happy that i found matching press studs to go with the greyish blue polka dot fabric!






and then i added a tiny little initial motif on the front





.... little bb posing for mama....
i must admit that the top turned out to be a little bit girly.... hehehe...
i will try to make sure that the next one i make is more boyish ^_^





it's really fun making the top for little bb....
i have ordered quite a lot of fabrics for making outfits, blankets, cushions and toys for little bb
they should be on their way!
very excited!

He's grown so much since I last saw him! He is adorable and so is the top! Glad he still fits it because it turned out great:)

i made one new born romper with siuyea's old polo shirt too. turned out too rough for babies to wear:P
