So my BIL got married on Sat. The big kids were in the wedding party and I knew they were going to look stylin. Needed to make something for the baby so that he too would look stylin. So I went into my pattern stash and found McCall's 6221. Sure it's a Christening pattern but I though why can't I work it up in other fabrics. After a trip to the fabric store to find some mens suiting material I set to work. I lined the vest part with red to add a little bit of flare and then bought some Elmo robieez and this is what he looked like.

I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Looks great, I love the red lining.

So adorable! I swoon over the little suits at Macy's every time I walk by them. Making one doesn't seem so difficult compared to adult clothing, but just difficult enough to put it waaaay off. It's so cute on the little bobblehead cutie (my favorite stage in infants is when their heads are just slightly bigger than their shoulders can handle on their own.)

And the Elmo shoes with the red vest lining is great.
