shorts for a little man

Shorts for a little man

Thank you so much for letting me know that you
guys like my dress in the last post!
It's always so nice to share my joy with you guys!

I worked on another garment; this time, it's a pair
of shorts for a little man - Taihei. You may recall
that I've made a little quilt for him for his 1st birthday.
I've been babysitting him since he was three months old.
I can hardly believe that he is 20 months old already.
He is now an outgoing, wild, most adorable toddler
who can sing, dance, and pretend to be a cat, lion, and a dog!
He knows the names of some parts of the face in both
Japanese and English too! He's just incredibly cute.


When I found this fabric in Nippori Textile town in Tokyo
last year, I knew immediately that I wanted to make something
for him with it. I just never had a chance to actually make
use of it until a few days ago when I sewed up these shorts.


I seriously couldn't wait to put these shorts on him.
I knew it would be super cute, but I was so anxious to
find out whether my pattern was good enough.


And it turned out it wasn't bad ;) Phew!
I don't know if he was very comfortable in them
or not but he didn't try to take them off at all,
so that's a very good sign!


His mom told me that this is his very first time to
receive handmade clothes, and that made me feel like 'Yay!'
and now I really want to go get more boyish fabric
so that I can make more clothes for him!!

Thanks for coming and reading!


  1. Yes, and the little guy is very cute too.

  3. Cute baby and cute shorts! Great job!

  4. He looks adorable in his new shorts.


  5. He looks so proud of them!! I love that fabric, too.

    Remember when you're sewing for his age group that their diapers take up a huge amount of space, and every time they graduate to a larger size of diaper, boom, they outgrow everything.
    Better start on the next size up now. :o)

  6. So cute! I love the fabric, it's perfect for a boy. :)
