As my first cousin E is about to give birth to the first little cutie in the maternal family since my nephew P was born (a bit more than a decade ago), and I won’t be able to make it to her shower party, I’m about to put these little cuties in the mail. E’s going to have a boy, unless the ultrasound was deceiving, and he’ll have his first Halloween and International Talk Like a Pirate Day long before he can talk. So he’ll have two great occasions to wear these in his first month. I hope his mum likes them.
I made them from a pattern that I got at Rather Bee Quilting in Lake City, MN when we went to buy fabric for the choir stoles project. That’s where I got the fleece lined fake suede I used for the soles. The pirate fabric came to me in some sort of exchange with the quilt guild, I think.
I’m hoping that E has a good delivery, and that little cutie to be named later is healthy and happy. I’m sure he’ll have enough personality to justify these, if he’s anything like his mum.
