I finally finished a sewing project...it's been a while, huh? Little Guy has outgrown most of his pajamas and bodysuits. He has several onesies, but they're mostly short sleeved which isn't really appropriate for this time of year without a cardigan. Ottobre to the rescue! I had traced off the "Naava coverall" (Ottobre 6/2009, #3) but it was already a size too small. I "remedied" that by simply cutting it out a little larger all around and keeping my original seam allowance...a bit sloppy perhaps, but time-saving!
I actually cut out two at the same time from the same material. I was going for practicality (something for the kid to wear!) rather than fashion. The other one is nearly done - just the leg binding and snaps left to do. Still, I needed to do something fun to spruce 'em up a bit. The other one was voted by hubby to be video game themed, so I decided to make this one reflect my abject nerdiness personality. Enter the pilcrow sign! Also known as the paragraph sign. I was originally thinking of a semi-colon or @ symbol, but after a quick perusal of Character Map the pilcrow won out.
They turned out so nice! I used a soft jersey knit from Chez Ami and some rib knit that was given to me. So cute and snuggly to keep my Little Guy warm day and night!
