Fenn's Summer Wardrobe!

Here we go... growing again. My boy is too big for most 18mos sized things now! His trunk is too long and too wide for the crotch snaps to work! So I have been trying to think of some cute and comfy play clothes he could wear. We spend most of our time at home, so a lot of time in our Jammers, but I realized that is when I am taking the most pictures so it would be nice if he were dressed every now and then!
I have decided to get him some cute applique tshirts to wear. that way he is still cute, but comfy. I ordered some iron on Appliques from this etsy seller

and am gonna pick up some white tshirts from target ( $5). Most of the time he will be wearing them with his cute cloth diapers like this:
and then I have a few easy cotton shorts from target just in case. I plan to learn how to make boys shorts this summer!

I'll let you know how the outfits turn out so stay tuned! It will be about $7 a shirt if it all works out!






 I have not washed them yet and am a little nervous how that will go. stay tuned.

What a great idea (not to mention adorable)! I'll be honest, I see posts like these and I wish we used cloth diapers just because they're so darn cute!

Cute idea! He looks adorable in his T's and cloth diaper.

Very cute! If you stitch a zig-zag stitch around the outside of your iron-on appliques it will prevent them from detaching, and it will look more finished. Also, you can easily make all the appliques you'd like with patterns from coloring books or online. Just iron fusable web to the "wrong" side of the fabric and then iron it on just like you did your iron-ons from the etsy seller. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to do applique and it always looks so cute. You can also enlarge any font on your computer and print it out as a pattern to add his name...cuter and cheaper than embroidered monograms!

They look great! Next time, wash t's before ironing on applique;). It will help to reduce the "buckling" of fabric. Love your blog!

So cute! You'll have to let us know how they wash. I'd love to get some appliques for the twins.
