Ok now that Ive got that song stuck in everyones head
The bf and I were going on vacation and at the last minute, the evening before we left, I decided I wanted a new shirt. Anyone who knows me, or actually reads my ramblings knows that I love to make my clothes out of vintage sheets. So out comes my collection of vintage sheets.
I scored big at Goodwill a few weeks ago. Vintage top and bottom Sesame Street sheets from the 70's.
I debated awhile weather or not i would look silly in a shirt covered in Muppets then said "Screw it I LOVE Muppets!"
Oscar the Grouch is my favorite SS character so I made sure he was on the front of the shirt right where everyone can see him.
I love this shirt pattern, 5 pieces and that it, quick, easy, and comfy. We went to Branson and it was over 100 for most of the time we were there so loose and breezy was required.
The back, just to show the different characters and to show there is no freaking Elmo! I dont like Elmo and think they might as we rename SS The Elmo show. I love this sheet though because it had so many classic characters on it, even Twiddle Bugs which I managed to get on the sleeves.
I did have a few issues though. I dont do interfacing, I feel it makes things to stiff, so I always double up things like yokes. While cutting out the yoke I ran out of sheet! what to do?! Pull out a sheet Im not overly fond of and make the inside.
You can see the, what I consider ugly, flowered fabric here. While cutting the front yoke I wasnt paying attention and cut a big chunk out of it!! Argh, why is it when your in a hurry things go wroung? So drag the ugly sheet back out and patch.
It patched very well and you cant really see it at all, its right up by the shoulder and who looks at peoples shoulders anyway?
And since shirts dont look right just laying on the bed.
We were at the Worlds Largest Toy Museume(which was AMAZING) and the bf made me stand still for a picture. I love Garfield!
This is now one of my favorite shirts and Ive had a TON of people comment on it, even the guy running the toy museum. Thanks for looking and reading my rambaling. C&C welcome.
