This past weekend has been a sewing weekend for me. Here are some of the fruits of my labors.
* Yes…that is a worm. Reid, my youngest, loves bugs.
The tutorial has you make your own pattern. I made this shirt once before but couldn’t get the neckline just right.
I think I finally got it…at least for size 2T.
Still…the edging still kind of drives me nutty. How I wish I had a serger.
You can see that two of the shirts have semi-jagged edging.
I tried to combat that by sewing the white edging on the third shirt more like quilt binding.
That turned out meh…so so. It made it kind of thick.
And oh…trying to make the size 5-6 shirt was a little trickier than I thought. Argh.
I still am not 100 percent pleased with it. But this one will do.
The shirts were done just in time. It was rainy for the better part of today and I doubt we even hit 70 degrees. The minute I saw sunshine I shooed everyone outside for pictures and then playing with neighbors.
Every time I make one of these shirts, I get so excited. I really made a shirt. Dude.
