Project Run & Play Week Two

***Have you been to Heart & Felt yet? Will you support my kids and their effort?***

Week two of Project Run & Play is here! It is Boy Week and I made "The Peddler". The outfit is completely inspired by Caps for Sale. Do you know that book? It is a favorite around here. I highly recommend it if you haven't read it.

I made these gray wool pants with a soft ribbed waistband, fly, front pockets, back flap pockets, pieced knees and ribbed ankle bands (perfect for growing boys!).  Caps for sale outfit-6431

The sweater is made from an adult sweater. I loved the stripe pattern and it is hard to find good sweater material. The burnt orange chevrons were sewn onto the sleeve to create a more modern, boy feel.

The knees are peiced. I rotated the pattern so they would stand out a bit and double topstitched just like the pockets and inseams.

And the caps. OH THE CAPS! Yes, I made them all. I used the Little Cap pattern. They are in the traditional colors of the book. I added appliqu├ęs to most of them for added appeal. There are nine in total. NINE. What was I thinking? Imagine getting a three year old to sit still enough to keep them stacked upright.

I happen to love the rolled ribbed cuff. This style would be especially great for quick growers and early walkers.

    Oh, you monkeys, you give me back those caps. A classic and a definite favorite around this house. I totally love the outfit. The pants are just darling. I’m so diggin’ the ribbed cuffs and the double top stitching is fabulous. And OMG, I can not believe you sewed all of those caps. Will you now be opening a Caps For Sale Etsy shop?

    I cannot believe that you sewed 9 caps !!! You were very busy !
    I really like that you put a ribbed waist & ribbed cuffs on the pants ~ makes them so comfy & easy to pull on & off.

    Coming over from PR&P to tell you how much I adore this outfit! Those pants are fantastic (I am a huge fan of the ribbed ankles, you’re right about them being perfect for early walkers and fast growers. I wish more pants had that look for the toddler set!). And the caps– oh, our family would have fun with them!! Nice work. :)

    Great job! Every time we read this book I marvel at the color combination and wonder how to translate it into everyday life. You created a wonderful literal translation. Wow.
