I previously made my little nephew a set from an old work shirt...gah! I still don't have pictures from his mom! that is found here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=347709.msg4051018#msg4051018
A friend of ours wanted a set for his little guy but he wanted it to say Dee Dee Ramone for the name instead, so this one isn't made of a recycled shirt. Instead its a bottom weight black twill and the accents are left over quilting cotton from the back of my mario blanket.

The collar fits better on this one since it was made to fit instead of adapted. OOH also this one was serged on my brand new serger!! Yay! Infact its the very first thing to be done on it (it has very colorful thread on the inside since I just used what was already on the machine as I was too impatient to rethread it before trying it out)
The embroidery (if you want to call it that) was done on my standard machine with a zigzag stitch. It came out very messy, which just makes it more punk rock, right? Also I didn't have room to get Dee Dee on there so we just went with Ramone.

Sorry for the picture quality one day I will get a real camera I promise!
And the little guy's dad promised me pictures... some day...  Wink

That bout wraps it up... C & C always welcome! Thanks for looking!

There's not enough stuff for little boys! Sure there aren't very many choices either with what you can make, but I have made it my life's mission to work hard on making lots of boy's stuff!

This is so damn cute! I love it! I want to make ALOT for my son now!
