Welcome, welcome, welcome! I was excited to participate in Boys Can Wear Pink Season 4 hosted by Kelly at Handmade Boy. Like I have done for most blog tours I have big, big plans for the tour, but reality, aka the flu, quickly reminds me I need to pare down my sewing list. While spending a week on the couch I searched and searched for fabric options. Once I narrowed them down I spent time with the boy deciding which one he wanted.
When I tell you letting a 6 3/4 (you can’t leave out his 3/4’s) year old decide on fabric is a bad decision please take heed. I purposely narrowed it down, because he is my child and will lose focus. He is that Dory meme personified. We looked at a few different options before going with these dinosaurs. They were secretly my first choice.
So let’s get down to it. I ordered the dinosaur fabric from Olumis Fabric and the stripes are from Mabel Madison. I knew these thin stripes would be PERFECT for these dinos.
We got the hard part done, but then we needed to decide on a pattern. He chose the Regem from Sofilantjes Patterns.
While we were choosing fabric I asked him if he understood what this topic was about. He told me he did. I asked him if he liked pink. “Pink is my favorite color.” His favorite color changes every day, but I love that he doesn’t care and loves pink (even though I don’t hahahaha). He then went on one of his little tirades about it’s just a color and he doesn’t understand what the problem is. Hopefully, that doesn’t change. I try very hard to let both of my mini humans know that colors have no gender. That’s just one of the many things humans didn’t get quite right.
The boy loves his new top. I took it back from him, because I don’t want it to get worn out before we go to La Brea Tar Pits next month. Maybe he will get the matching shorts before the trip…
I hope you enjoyed our stop and I invite you to visit the other blogs on the tour. So many cool pink outfits on these guys.

I love the origami dinos and the blocking you did with the stripes on the back! What a gorgeous 6 3/4 little one you have there!
