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.
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 them both of my mini humans know that colors have no gender.
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.
