Life with an autistic son, two daughters, a husband, and a full time job can get pretty hectic! Making things helps me maintain SANITY.

Sewing for Sam
I have been trying to think of something I can sew for Sam. His sensory issues make that a bit difficult. For example, I made him really lovely Oliver and S bedtime Story pajamas and he refused to wear them because they felt "different". I was able to get him to wear the pants for a abotu 15 minuted but he absolutely FLIPPED when I tried to put the kimono style top on him. SO now I have this great pair of size 8 pajamas and no one to wear them! They are blue and brown so, unless she adjusts her tastes, Maya won't wear them when she is older ( I keep hoping she will learn to love blue like I do!!)
I think I have decided to make Sam a Charlie Tunic. I love this pattern and I have made a few shirts for the girls. The pattern doesn't quite go up to his size but I think I can size it up myself.
