It’s day 6!!! How are we already into the weekend?! We’re still having some difficulty with the community pool and new users and I have my fingers crossed that it will be back up soon. But we’ll see how it goes. Either way, are you still getting your hour in? I realized the other day that the kids have more or less outgrown all their basic patterns, so I spent quick a bit of my hours reprinting and taping basics.
Now that I’ve finished printing a fresh set of tee sizes. I used those up to make this guy some batman tees. I’ve hoarded these panels for a few months now (I can’t remember exactly when, but they were from a preorder round at TKBPrints). But he’s always wanted these tees and the panels were starting to get small, so it was good timing on using them up. The solid I used was a black jersey from imagine gnats.
I used the safari raglan by Titchy Threads in a size 7. The panels were a bit too short for the size 7, so I used the hem band from the rowan tee (also from Titchy Threads) to make the length work. The fit is a bit wide on him, but that was because I decided not to lengthen a narrower size and just cut out a straight 7, instead of say, a size 6 width with a 7 length.
I spent one day cutting out the fabrics, since I batch cut a couple of tees for him, and spent an hour sewing two of those tees. It was a nice quick sew and so far this week has been filled with quick, easy projects. It’s really helped to make me feel inspired and motivated to do more sewing!
Plus, the reaction I’ve gotten when making things like this is exactly why I love sewing. I placed them somewhere he would see as soon as he got home from school yesterday and he was so thrilled!! The boy loves anything batman related 😉
How is your week going? How do you plan on doing the weekend? I tried cutting out some stuff ahead of time yesterday but just trying to figure out when I’ll get my hour in.
