Jubilee Baby

What a lovely long weekend we’ve had in the UK to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.  Very little partying has gone on in our house due to a combination of weather-influenced apathy and the awkwardness of managing a baby but I didn’t want the occasion to go completely unmarked.  My little guy is the first British citizen in my family so I decided he should be suitably attired and fly the flag.  Isn’t it practically compulsory to dress your children in embarrassing outfits once in a while?!

Not wanting his American heritage to be ignored, I decided to break up the Union Jacks with some stars.

I whipped these trousers up on Friday night, using the Big Butt Baby Pants pattern from Made by Rae.  I love this pattern – it’s beautifully simple, and the back panel gives extra room for cloth nappy-wearing babies.  I can see I’ll be making several more of these for my little guy, it’s just the sort of quickie project that suits my life right now.  Maybe not in patriotic fabric, I don’t want him to hate me too much when he’s older!  Still, he looks pretty happy in them, doesn’t he?

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend, whether celebrating or relaxing!
