Wanted to sew something for Mae for the holidays.
My younger boys have hand-me-downs they can rock but not Mae.
Plus the kid has started to make specific requests for his wardrobe.
His request: a sweater, green, with white collar, and finished with buttons.
I used the Greenpoint Cardigan pattern and sized up to a 4T so it would be a little big.
I didn't want too much of a contrast in the white collar so decided to print all the ribbing pieces with white lightening bolts instead. Using freezer paper and my exacto blade I went to work cutting out each bolt and then painted with fabric paint.
A ton of work, but worth the effort.
Love that it can be paired with red and herringbone for the holidays but also worn beyond as everyday garb.
