Every spring I run into the same dilemma for Easter clothes for my guys. For girls there are loads of cute little outfits, but for boys it's pretty much sweater vests & button-up shirts in pastel colors. While some of these are cute the reality is it's a waste of money for me. Other than Easter when would they wear something that dressy? They don't go to polo matches, play golf or have a house in the Hamptons. So I thought up these t-shirts that are ideal for Easter, a little cheeky, can be worn to play outside and cost less than $5.
For "Bunny Hop" I freehand drew a bunny shape based on some Easter pjs I saw in a catalog (they were $48! Really now, who is buying those??). I cut out the word hop and stitched all those on using varigated pastel thread. I added a nose & eye with embroidery floss.
I wanted a cute design for my 7yr old that didn't seem too babyish, so I drew up this little chickie & magnet, stitched them on and added a button for the eye. Cheeky for the chickies indeed!
I paired these with some khakis I made last year from my husband's old pants and look at my hip Easter fellas:
Chicky says what? $5 for 2 Easter Outfits? What a deal! Now, don't worry baby fans, I'm not leaving my little girl out. I've made her a dress too, so that & my review of the pattern used will be up soon.
