I want to give a big thanks to Terra for guest posting last Tuesday, and sharing her adorable baby dress. It is lovely, and it sure looks like a lot of fun to dress up those little girls.
Dressing up a boy can be quite fun as well, you just have to work with what you have. So today we are going to try to get away from footed newborn pajamas, and get our newest bundles of joy ready for the holidays.
I love baby booties (I know you know that). My Sister in law, who is expecting her third little boy, recently made a request for some cute baby boy booties. This is my first attempt at baby boy booties, I decided to make a wing tip version for the little guys (see the little girl version here). I added the second layer of faux leather, and punched holes in varying sizes around the shoe.
My husband informed me that he thinks that they are borderline girly, but I would say borderline unisex.
Now that baby has a new pair of shoes, let's work on the rest. When Clark was a little guy I loved having him in pants. We had a pair of navy blue cords that he wore for quite a while. I wanted me nephews to have some comfortable and stylish pants to sport this holiday season.
I pulled out a pair of Clark's newborn pants, and made a pattern for this pair.
I added some faux pocket details in the front and back. I'm quite enamored with these little pants. I plan on making several more pair for the little guys. I'm also hoping to figure out how to create a print at home pattern for these pants. (would anyone be interested?)

To complete the holiday look, why not add a cute appliqued necktie onesie. I'm sure that you've seen them around, but they sure are cute. Char from Crap I've Made, has an easy to follow tutorial here. I've been meaning to make one of these for my sister's little guy, but I haven't found the time.
If you can't find the time now either, perhaps you'd be interested in one of the many versions for sale on etsy. I am quite fond of this holiday bow tie number from Teeny Punks.
I hope that this inspires you to dress up those baby boys. For more Holiday Apparel inspiration check out the Hip for the Holidays link party.
Thanks for reading. I'll be linking up here.
