Little Dude recently had a birthday!  I was excited to sew something for my boy.  For two years in a row Little Dude has had a Pokemon birthday party!  You may remember his last Pokemon Birthday shirt:

Just look how much he has changed in a year.  I am happy to report that he still can wear last years birthday shirt.  In fact, he is wearing it today!

Although he went through a phase where Pokemon was not as important over the last year.  Pokemon had been brushed to the side, it has now came back. Little Dude is really starting to love working with numbers.  He must get that from his father!  I am more of a language person.  With the introduction of Pokemon cards, he has learned a lot about numbers.

Since Little Dude is still young, instead of playing the real Pokemon rules, we play war instead.  Playing Pokemon has really helped him learn his numbers and do math quickly. Some day we may actually learn the real rules of Pokemon.

Little Dude was spoiled with presents. I really try to keep from buying too much, but I always overbuy.  I cannot help it.  He is such a good kid.  He received toys, games, lots and lots of Pokemon cards.  He loved it all! He had originally asked for a Ghastly shirt, then last minute changed his mind to Gengar.  I luckily found this awesome Gengar Svg on Etsy (you can find it here.) It was not until he tried on his new shirt that he give me a huge hug and said thank you.  He loves his new shirt and talks about the softness.  I used a Blue Double Brushed Polyester from Knitpop and it is soo soft.

Little Dude has some sensory sensitives, so clothes are hard for him.  He has sensitives to a lot of textures.  He knows when Mom makes his clothes I will always pick the softest fabrics without any tags!  I used the Jolly Roger Raglan from Patterns for Pirates.

Of course, I decided to last minute make something for Baby Girl for her brother’s birthday!

About Seams Sew Lo 147 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!

  1. Great job on these! To my knowledge, my kids don’t have sensitivity issues, but some of our friends do and they love to try and snuggle into my kids clothes LOL. Which makes me think… one of them has a birthday coming up so I should probably get his measurements!
