I made Elias a new spring jacket with help from Anna Maria Horner’s book Handmade Beginnings: 24 Sewing Projects to Welcome Baby.   The pattern is called “Baby-in-the-Hood Jacket.”  The making of it went very well, and I was pleasantly surprised at how fast it came together.  I cut out the pieces one night and then sewed it all together the next day in between naps, feedings, diapers…


A little cowboy action, fitting for South Dakota, some brown corduroy lining, and 4 yellow handmade buttons.


I made the 24 month size and it fits him perfectly–he is almost 14 months.



I think he likes it!  Now if we can just get spring to come our way.
