BCWP, Day 6 Unicorn Love

I have been loving seeing everybody's use of pink in their boy's wardrobe! I hope you have too! Today, I am going to share with you, the pink unicorn shirt.

Yes, not only did I make him a bright pink shirt, this puppy has a UNICORN on it as well!

Having two older sisters, Thomas naturally loves some things that have been put onto the girl's team. Unicorns are one of those things. Why are unicorns considered girly??? Boys love magical creatures, too!

"What do you mean unicorns aren't for boys, too?!"

The unicorn is small, but it's there and it makes Thomas smile. (me, too!) I went with a small embroidered silhouette. Very traditional and non traditional at the same time.

He was a total goof ball for this photo shoot. I can't say it wasn't a blast to do these pictures. But he did want to wear his stenciled Boys Can Wear Pink shirt when I told him we had pictures to do. Honestly. He loves that shirt!


I absolutely LOVE this color on him. There will be more shirts of this color in his closet.


Photo shoots first thing in the morning are rough! It was the crack of 9am. He needs to contact his agent and get better working conditions.


 But don't worry, he had a lot of fun! You would never guess he wasn't a morning person this morning. 

The fabric is cotton/lycra from Purple Seamstress in hot pink. The shirt pattern is Peek-a-Boo's Classic Polo. The pants are Patterns for Pirates Cpt Comfort Jeans. He declares them cozy every time I put them on his because they are fully lined with flannel.

    1. LOL! Unicorns rule! It's from urban threads. It really does stitch up beautifully. I kept having threads breaking because of a bad needle so there are gaps in the one on this shirt. http://www.urbanthreads.com/products.aspx?productid=UT5757

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE this & WOW I can't believe it's handmade! You have so completely inspired me to give this polo pattern a go. TY! My 9yr old loves Pink...and magical creatures...and sparkly things. He doesn't understand "why" they aren't 'boy things' {& neither do I for that matter}!

    1. Thank you! The polo is great! When we tested this pattern, it was my first placket! Thomas's favorite color is purple, but he is having a lot of fun with his new pink items and happily wears them. Along with magical creatures and sparkles and glitter. Who doesn't love glitter?!
