As I mentioned before, the baseball tee has become a favorite for B. Warmer arms, but no need to push up sleeves to experiment in water, dirt, sand, toilets etc. I had a raglan for each boy on my to-sew list for KCWC, but now that I've discovered the super speed of making raglan tee- shirts, I may sneak in a few more before Sunday. So far though, this one is my favorite. I actually made a little tee shirt and shorts set for Jonesie yesterday (Day 5) too, but this guy deserved a post all to himself.
B is super proud. He had a rough day at school yesterday, but I had this shirt ready for him by the time he got home. The mood swing was abrupt and delightful. Though he insists that I call it his "robot shirt" or his "color stripe shirt" not a "rainbow shirt." He says he's not such a fan of rainbows, even if he really likes this fabric.
It has rainbow stripe on the sleeves and back and gray on the front. The robot is another freezer paper stencil. The edges of the bottom edge and the edges of the sleeves are left raw. I'd left them long enough to hem, but they roll up so nicely, so why bother? Beck insists that it makes them more comfy too. This picture is lame, but it's the only one I snapped that shows the stripes on the back.
I think after KCWC is all wrapped up, and I take a quick breather, I'll post a tutorial for eyeballing this raglan pattern from an existing tee shirt. It's just so simple and I've had such a good time with the ones I made this week.
PS. My kids don't actually play in toilets. At least one of them doesn't. The other very well might, if left to his own devices. No governor on that little guy, but he knows how to have a good time. He's way more fun the other 3 of us combined. Still though, we try to stay away from commodes, as a general rule.
