RAWR!!! Dinosaur Jammies and Tommy T-rex

Okay... can I just tell you how much I love this set???

You know how much I like to make these Bit of Whimsy dolls...
well, I kept meaning to put this package in the mail and call it quits, but I just kept thinking what a great opportunity it was to make a Tommy T-rex.

Obviously, I lost the fight with self control and went ahead and made him.

Isn't he the cutest?

I was (quite literally) squealing with delight the whole time I was putting him together. I just could not stop giggling with glee at how cute and snuggly and soft he was. I kept picturing little Xavier carrying him around snuggling him- maybe while he was sleeping.

... and then I could not get it out of my head how cute it would be if he had some matching jammies.

I knew it was ridiculous to make more... but I already had his pants pattern traced off and Hobby Lobby had their t-shirts half off... so I went with it... and I'm so HAPPY I did.

It was so fun to make!!!!

I just love it!

I got this little shirt from Hobby Lobby in the blanks section- but I got a 24 months because it looked TINY. The applique is from Sewing from Sarah. I love this dinosaur applique!

The pants are the Easy Fit Pants made out of flannel from Hancock Fabrics and cotton at the cuff.

The jumbo ric rac makes me giggle. I just love it!

I love when I get to just make whatever I want! I had so much fun making these gifts.
I can't wait to see pictures of the little guy wearing them.

I finished three of my pillowcase dresses yesterday and I have one more to make today and then I can ship those off. I also have a baby set to make and lots of designs to test for Lynnie Pinnie. Have you seen all her new designs?

I would never have thought to use ricrac on boy pants...but I absolutely love it. These are awesome.
