The fabric I used for this shirt was the other inspiration for this collection. It’s from a women’s Volcom shirt that I thrifted. It’s white with black and yellow scribbles all over it. The chartreuse is close enough to the yellow, so I added chartreuse raglan sleeves. I LOVE that it looks like Henry scribbled all over his shirt.

The shorts are made from sweatshirt knit. I love the simple easiness of this fabric. I then added an outline of a walrus on one side by sewing without a sewing foot. It’s a really fun way to add sketchy looking details.

The neckline on the shirt is a little big, but the overall shirt is a little big so I’m hoping it’ll last until the end of the summer.

Can you find where I caught Henry drawing on himself with a marker?

I also made some black faux leather sandals for Henry using this baby sandal tutorial. I made it big enough for him. I love this look because it covers his toes. Most sandals you can buy don’t protect the toes, and Henry falls/trips/stubs his toes almost constantly. They have a little bit of growing room too. I used red elastic on the back and there’s some red faux leather on the bottom too (picture coming!).

After one hour outside, they held up really well and had good traction. We’ll see if they hold up through the whole summer. I might have to make him some more.
