So this is one of my little people, Z.
Z loves pirates, and I love Z, so I have been taking pirate picture books out of the library, peppering my speech with "arr" and "matey", and naturally, I made an eye patch.
Z is more of a lover than a fighter, so I made him an eye patch for Valentine's day with a heart and crossbones.
Then I saw Alexander Henry's Pirate fabric over at Purl Soho's online shop and decided it was high time for a family field trip to Purl. So we went, and I got me a yard each of the Multi Pirate Flag in Tea, and the Old Red Pirate Grid. I took out the super simple Reversible Pant pattern from Dear My Kids easy wear and set to work. Knowing that for Z more is more, I added some velour iron on transfers I had in my stash, and this is what Z had hanging on the doorknob of his closet when he woke up Sunday morning.
