i completed my first item for kids clothes week!
an embroidered horseshoe! for luck.
she’s taking pictures with the lens cap. on her eye.
now she’s a rainbow. obviously.
i really like how the shirt turned out. it was quite easy to trace one of her existing shirts to make the pattern, and really quick to sew up! only 5 pattern pieces, and i used my serger to sew almost all of it, completing all the sewing in about an hour and a half. the only part i’m not crazy about is the collar. i used some of the red knit folded in half, and it doesn’t have as much stretch as a rib would, so it sits a little funny at her neck. but you know what? i would’t let that stop me from making another one. i also accidentally made the whole shirt kinda long, but it works out well cause she’s got a big round belly to cover. most of her shirts stop covering her belly first.
the best part? this cost next to nothing. i got the cowboy sheet at the goodwill for $2.99, and the red shirt was on its way to the goodwill. there is so much of the cowboy fabric left that i think i might make some cowboy jammies too!
