Reid loves airplanes.
He has some seriously good hearing and eyesight.
He notices every single airplane in the sky long before we hear it or see it.
He looks up and points and doesn't take his eyes off the plane until it is out of sight.
Then he says, "Bye bye!" :)

Well, of course, Mumsie had to smock her sweet boy some airplanes!
I used my most frequently used pattern,
Creations by Michie', pattern #137, the Jon Jon.
The fabric is royal blue Imperial microcheck, lined with Imperial broadcloth.

The plate is Joe's Toy Planes,
designed by Laura Jenkins Thompson, for Terry Jane, Inc.

I asked Michie' if she had any plans to make the Jon Jon in toddler sizes,
and good news! She is working on it!

Reid was at our house today, and when he was leaving
 I laid the outfit in the seat next to his carseat.
He spotted it and smiled, and wanted to hold it.
I showed him the airplanes and he wouldn't let go of the outfit!!!
His mom said he snuggled it all the way home.
 Isn't that the sweetest thing? It just made me want to cry.
Probably only a smocker would understand that...
Or maybe only a smocking grandmother...:)

Happy Sewing!


  1. I love it when kids hug their clothes. My one year old grabbed a bubble I made my upcoming nephew and hugged it all day... I don't yet smock, but she picked herself out a dress with smocked teddy bears at a consignment store and still gets it out of her "too big" clothes pile and carries it around, often pausing to make sure the bears are still there :-)

  2. Beautiful. I'm a rookie in smocking but I try to do the airplanes.
