My first sewing project posted. I'm so proud of these.  Grin Up until now I've only made my son halloween costumes. This is the first clothing item I've made for him. I think they turned out pretty cute. I had to put the big block of fabric on the shirt to cover up all the little holes I made trying to applique the individual dinosaurs to the shirt. Big mistake. At least you can't see the holes anymore.

YAY, a project for boys!

I like the cloth block on the front.  It's so hard to find logo free t-shirts for toddlers, so this approach would make it a lot easier to use a shirt with existing text as the top in a set.

Cool solution- and your fabric is fabulous.  Nice work.

Thanks!

The shirts are from Michael's they were 2/$4 last week or maybe it was 2/$5. Either way really cheap. I bought 4 t-shirts and I have 3 other pairs of pants I just have to find a way to incorporate the pants fabric into the shirt to make it a real "set".

The best part about sewing kids jammies is they don't CARE if its not what * you * intended... And they look good to me!

Maybe make it look like a faux patch placed diagonally sewn along the edges and thick decorative stitching perpendicular to the edge like this:

Thanks for the idea about patchworking the little cut-outs. I had tried doing that before and using my machine and that's how I got the little holes in the shirt. I've still got 3 more shirts to do for with matching pants. I'll try sewing by hand and see if that makes a difference. And yes he is one tall skinny kid!  Cheesy He gets the tall from me but definitely not the skinny.  Roll Eyes
