Paging Dr. Luke

LukeScrubs

This was community helper week at preschool. On Thursday, the students dressed up as their favorite community helpers. I made scrubs for Luke using Butterick pattern 5565. This was a good reminder of why I don't sew clothes: Scrubs have a very generous fit (with lots of room for error), and the top is still way too big! Oh well, he still looked cute. And maybe he can wear them again for Community Helper Day 2014.

I have to tell you my tale of woe with this project. I started it back in the fall for community helper day at Luke's old school. I was furiously sewing the night before when we had a bad storm and lost power for the rest of the night, so I couldn't finish them. Then I tried to get Luke to go as a doctor for Halloween. He decided he'd rather be Spider-Man. So I was glad he got the chance to wear them!

I want to take him to Heinz's work and show him off! They'll put him to work cheering up the patients.

I remember that crafting emergency! We need to buy a sewing machine generator.

My gosh, the boy is cute - most babies lose their cuteness so quickly, lucky you!
