"I" could also be for infatuation, because after sewing for 5 girls, 6 if you count me ;) it is so much fun to sew for a little boy!
He was even willing to try it on a few times while I was making it, maybe because that meant he got to walk around without his shirt in between fittings.I used Burda 9505 for the pattern, one that I've used a few times before. It just fits so nicely and looks professional. Both Ryan and Divine asked, "you made that?" as I was editing photos.
I added elbow patches, because I'm kind of infatuated with those, too. Does that fabric look familiar? I've used it for a few things including covering buttons for the tufting on the bench I reupholstered.I also added little tabs on the pocket and buttonhole, not serving any purpose other than visually stimulation. It's a waterproof fabric that doesn't fray, so I can cut it out in any shape and not have to worry about wear and tear.
I was being so productive, that when I noticed an unusual amount of silence, I found that Drummer had been "playing trucks in dirt." At least he tells the truth.
And I also know that, technically, spiders are not insects. Where are all the fake bugs when you actually need them?
Love that print! So classy in color yet fun at the same time. The little tabs are great too. What a fabulous shirt! It does look professional!ReplyDelete
Wow! The shirt looks amazing!ReplyDelete
That is amazing! I wish I could sew like that for my little boy! (They are almost the same age)ReplyDelete
Super duper cute. I really like the small but significantly important details you chose to add. They take it from a regular shirt to an amazing one-of-a-kind piece!ReplyDelete
You're sweet, thanks, Mae.Delete
I LOVE that shirt! Oh how fun!ReplyDelete
Love the print and the fit.ReplyDelete
How fun! Where did drummer's cute little kiss mark go on his cheek?ReplyDelete
:-) That was also my first reaction!Delete
Love the shirt.
After seeing his pediatrician, a pediatric dermatologist and two plastic surgeons, we decided it was best to have it removed while he's still young and his skin will heal quickly. I'll admit that a part of me is sad to have it go :( It's been a few weeks since he had his surgery, and he came through like a champ!Delete
This is a great shirt for a little boy! I like the fabric choice, creepy but not at the same time. :)ReplyDelete
Ha! I do love a mixed reaction ;)Delete
I love all of your projects, but this one is so adorable that I had to tell you.ReplyDelete
I LOVE that fabric too! My little girl is into insects (and strangely afraid of spiders). She would love this.
Awesome as always!
great project! Sewing for boys is definitely not boring. Out of curiosity, what was the reason for getting his mark removed? Violet has the same thing going on in the same place. She hasn't been to the doctor for probably a year or year and a half, but the last time I asked they said it was nothing to worry about. I know my husband and I worry sometimes though.ReplyDelete
To eradicate worry once and for all and quicker/smoother recovery at his age.Delete
Hi is so adorable! And that shirt is fabulous! It does look completely professional but much more hip than off the rack!ReplyDelete
Anneliese, you're so kind.Delete
I love this SOOO much!ReplyDelete
This is such a cute shirt for a boy! Love it!ReplyDelete
This turned out so cute. Could you share the name of the fabric and where you got it from? My boy would love it.ReplyDelete
Oooh. Love that pattern and of course all your little touches. You are a master at details. I liked seeing your paperwhite? bulbs. I remember you talking about them last year I think?, and felt inspired to buy some of my own. They are starting to sprout a little bit. I hope to have blooms by Christmas!ReplyDelete
Golly, he looks like such a big boy now, no more baby cheeks! But poor cheek owie! I planted bulbs in containers this year - 4 large pots. Of course, I had to fill a 5th pot with dirt for my 3 girls to play in (so they would leave the ones with bulbs alone!).ReplyDelete
I love how he played in dirt and told you, what a sweetie. I cannot believe how much he has grown! I love the shirt, especially the patch on his elbow.ReplyDelete
dear Katy. finally I posted my links, I hardly could follow you. now I have some serious doubts about having more children, as I found that the more children you have the more productive and more creative you can be! I would never consider choosing a bug fabric if I don't see this post. you have the power to change me I think. I love your works words and pictures, and your children. often I leave your space with a melted heart. I will of course find some bug fabric and chop sticks fabric and octopus ones to have some serious fun. besides, this Sunday I just cut my hair so to have a bang, a Katy bang.ReplyDelete
Haha! Wonderful, Ada!Delete
I've never been one for bugs, but that shirt is adorable : )!!ReplyDelete
