It was my nephew's 2nd birthday yesterday and I made him this tracksuit as a present. I thought what he'd love to do was play, climb and run so I decided I would take him to an indoor playground some time. (Coz the weather here is getting colder and wetter as it's almost winter.) A tracksuit would be perfect for doing such things in. Of course, he didn't think it was that great. Clothes aren't very exciting presents for little kids but the fun part is yet to come. I ended up putting a design of my own on the front. I was going to get a cool printed fleece to make it out of but low and behold when I went to our two major craft stores to find some none could be found. It was difficult enough finding plain fleece. Everything has gone to polar fleece and I didn't want to use that. It's a good thing I decided not to make it a little smaller as Mum said the pattern is quite roomy. It fits him well but any smaller and it would be a bit too tight. I put a tie at the top to make sure they stay up. I didn't do any measurements you see. So I think it worked out fairly well.

  1. Yeah, he took one look at the knitted jumper I made him and dropped it on the floor. LOL!
