Team Spirit Oliver + S Style!

Our summer is almost over here. :( The boys go back to school this next week. I am going to miss the little guys. So to start the first day of school off right I am making all the boys an outfit. Mr. W chose some of his favorite football team's fabric for a pair of sandbox shorts and a matching bucket from the LTTS book. I made his from the sew along form a Little Gray. 

Jessica has a great tip here for putting together these hats quicker and easier than the pattern! It makes both sides of the hat top stitching look great.
I also added a small square applique to the white side of the hat for fun!

I used the sandbox shorts pattern for his bottoms. I do need to add the elastic waist band still and the buttons to the back pockets but he still loves them. I not sure if you can tell but there are front pockets too.

Well onto one more pair of shorts and one more bucket hat before we say so long to summer here and hello school days!

Happy Sewing!



  1. LOVE the matching hat and shorts! I also love how great this hat looks on kids of all ages- what a handsome guy!

  2. So super cute! I love the matching hat and shorts and the logos. I recently made a logo'd pouch for a girl I know starting off in college. That stuff is great!

  3. I love the detail on this reverse side. The shorts look great!

  4. Great way to allow him to show this team spirit! Looks great!

  5. Your hat and matching shorts look great! I love seeing an older boy wearing the hat! :)
