The recycler has struck again! This time it’s a shirt she made for Tully out of one of her old ones. I still can’t figure out how she did the sizing, but I guess if there is a will there is a way. And he’s so cute it doesn’t matter what he has on anyway… I’m an unbiased granma you realize 😉
“A shirt I made for T. out of a shirt of mine that I hardly ever wore. I copied the basic shape from a shirt of his, though since I cut it a wee bit too short I had to add the “onsie” bit to it. Now the problem is that the white from the onsie shows up over his pants when he moves too much, so I made him a belt and hopefully that will do the trick.”
“My next mistake, though it ended up giving more character to the shirt, was that I cut the collar too short for the neck hole… I had to add the piece with the button that you see. But I do like the way it came out! However, life would be so much easier with out having to constantly fix mistakes! Do it right the first time!!”
I haven’t written much in the blog but have a few words tonight. I’m on vacation in Cleveland and there isn’t much to do, although visiting with my daughter, son-in-law and new baby, tully, is a lot. I carefully packed my one carry on to include my “Dear Jane” project to work on here but to my utter disappointment, I found out I only took the finished blocks with me, not the ones I was going to work on. Oh well, haven’t done any work this whole summer!
My daughter sent me a picture of her husband using the “Moby Wrap” with her son. I guess it’s a unisex wrap with that neutral black color. No excuses dads!
This was my daughter’s project.
To make a wrap-around baby carrier (like a Moby Wrap):
- Cut approximately Five (5) yards of a slightly stretchy fabric 45″- 60″ wide that also “breathes” (eg cotton knit).
- Cut in half the long way; making two wraps.
- Fold in half the short way.
- Iron on or sew an applique to indicate the center for when you are ready to use it.
- The two ends should taper off to be points for an easier tie, so cut a triangle off each.
And that’s all folks!
My daughter reminded me that the fabric she used for the crib set is from my store. As you can probably guess, my children like “shopping” in my store.
A question often asked at Sew Materialistic is: “Do you only sell craft fabrics?” Obviously, you can make whatever you want with cotton fabrics.
My daughter made this crib set as a gift because she doesnt like quilting but likes personalized gifts.
