Love Love Love all the outfits for your boy! So bright, so styling, yet so practical and comfy looking.

With the patchwork shorts, I'm wondering, how do you finish the inside seams?

Sorry, didn't realise this thread had been posted to again.

I bought the patchwork ready made, the seams are all serged.

Yes its still summer here. A shirt to go with the patchies I sns'd. Ro loved this. Partially recycled.

I asked my first grader Ro to draw the rocket from the fabric on a piece of paper.  I then traced it with a fabric marker and fabric crayons to make the shirt.  Then I made some shorts to sort of go with it.  He L-O-V-E-S red white and blue things so the shorts were a hit.

Here he is his first day with his new teacher (which is the same teacher my sixth grader had for Kindy!!)

I've been sewing my first grader (Ro) a new pair of shorts every day this week because he has shot up and his old ones were starting to resemble hot pants.  The first two pairs are made from Charlie Rocket fabric that my friend and I got in L.A.  We made a special trip because a friend had bought the woodies fabric and I coveted it.  Then I fell in love with the patchie fabric too.

Ro and I are loving these elasticated knit waistbands.  Easy, look sharp and are super comfy to wear according to Ro.

The pirate outfit started as two stripey ladies shirts from the thrift store. He and I picked them out.  Nice thick stretchy knit that had washed up nicely.  He is into pirates so it was an obvious choice.  I finished the outfit last night after he was in bed and when he tried it on the sleeves were a little on the shorter side (I used the sleeves from the shirt and they weren't very big).  Not terrible but no growing room, so this morning before the bus left I unpicked the original hem and attached a coordinating cuff.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this, but I have some tokidoki fabric that I'm going to ebay when I get back from sew expo.

I bought one for my 10 yr old son for Solstice this year.  I spent a year looking for one that I liked at a good price.

It is soooo cute!

"How did you get the icing such a bright green?"

I used Wilton's leaf green food colour paste from Michael's and a dab of regular yellow food colour.
10  COOKING / Dessert / Monster Bag Cake on: November 15, 2006 07:23:36 AM
I made my son a monster book bag for his first day of Kindy. 

His name is Stanley and he has quite a personality.  For one, his favourite food is crayons. He got banned from the kindergarten classroom for trying to eat the art supplies and now sulks in a cubby while littley is in class.

Anyway, littlely recently turned 6 and I made him a Stanley birthday cake.  All the kids from his class came to the party and instantly recognised his cake.  It was a hit.

Victoria sponge cake base, sandwiched with jam and covered in lurid green buttercream.  Even the adults had some!

Finally, here is the birthday boy wearing his birthday shirt I made him.
