Dalton WITH Felix

He changed his mind!

He finally wants to wear the Dalton pants. He even allowed me to take some pictures.

Although it still has to happen rather quickly as his good mood changed in a glimpse of an eye.

Dalton and Petit Pan on a trip to the desert

Two for the price of one; a lovely day out as well as a photo shoot on location.

The Dalton pants a couple of sizes bigger than the pants of Felix, this time around in some gorgeous Petit Pan cotton.

The tractable child baptized it a great ‘sand pants’. She let herself completely go during the shoot.

We will surely make more of these as it is a great pattern!

The trip itself was also really fun. It had been a while since our previous pick nick trip to the desert and it was another unforgettable trip.
We ran, we jumped, we crawled, we ‘fought’, and we ate.

And … The company was fantastic. See you soon desert-friends!

Mobile phone sleeping bag

I wish I had a sleeping bag just like my mobile phone. I could do with a good long hibernation sleep; but not just yet, there are two more days of school left and then we take a break! I can’t wait!

Petit Pan is still my favorite and the KamSnap colors that was just good luck! I only have four colors lingering around and two of them perfectly match this fabric.

I know the Dalton pants from La Maison de Victor (edition 3), is the perfect pants for Felix. We enlarged the pattern as it is not provided for huge 3 year olds!

So far the pants are hanging on our wall with washi-tape, because Felix is still not a big fan of homemade garments and consequently he is very unhappy when I dress him with his new Dalton. Although it looks gorgeous on him.
I plan to make one for Jade soon because she loves homemade garments and sometimes that is just enough to motivate Felix to start wearing his!

The best weekend of the year is on its way, Dubai Rugby 7s, and that means: last hard training sessions, and some practice games. Our practice game against Brasil got some press coverage. In this picture you see Moeke attack against the National Brasilian ladies. We lost against a fast and strong Brasil nevertheless this game was a great preparation for the main tournament this weekend.
