Oh Boyz aka t-shirt of faces
When I saw this fabric at Eurokangas I did not think twice: K was going to get a new t-shirt. With the funny print there was no need to get a fancy pattern, so I took an old an trusted pattern: Let It Be from Ottobre Design 6/2010.
There was really nothing fancy with the sewing. I added a bright orangey red collar using a scrap piece of jersey I had in my stash. If I remember correctly the selvage of the printed jersey said “Oh Boyz”, so that is what I started calling the t-shirt in my mind.
This t-shirt has been in regular use already for months. I have had trouble taking the photos since the t-shirt seems to get stains and/or end up in the laundry pile faster than I have been able to grab my camera! The good thing is that it has weathered regular washing well and who am I to complain when my makes are appreciated!
Today I was waiting with the camera when K came home from school. The reluctant attitude turned into excitement as I casually offered an ice cream reward. The boy finished his maths homework faster than I could take the photos so we finished by taking some ridiculous poses at the staircase.
Why of WHY did I never sew with such cute fabric when my kids were little??? He is so lucky!
