Tiny Puppy Photobomb!

Welcome to my stop on the Otium Sweater by Sofilantjes Tour! There is an Otium Pattern for both Women and Girls. During the tour the individual Girls and Womens patterns are on sale for 20% off at The Womans/Girls bundle is on sale for 30% off. No code needed!

The Otium Sweater fits sizes XS-XXXL women and 12M-14 Years in girls. The pattern is available in both EN and NL languages, There is a separate download for each so make sure to purchase the right language. The Otium has a boat neck and both a high and low back option. The low back has an optional bow. There are several sleeve options  and an option for a cool triangle front pocket. This pattern is packed with variations!


I made both of ours with 3/4 sleeves and the bow back option. Those bows are just too adorable to pass up. The sweaters sew up super quick. I completed both of them on my serger in about an hour and a half from cut to finish.


My daughter is a bit Flamingo obsessed. She calls them “Mingos”. They are her favorite animal because Hello! Pink!  I found this really cool Stenzo Flamingo print at Loiseau Fabrics.


This was my first mommy and me shoot. I underestimated the challenges that it would bring up. Height differences.. Daughter that looses her ability to stand.. She is used to me being behind the camera. I think I was a big distraction 😛


Despite all that we had a great time. It all ended with us making grass angels and rolling around on the ground. She is thrilled to have a flamingo shirt and when she has long grown out of hers I will have mine to remind me of her “Mingos”
