We've made it to the halfway mark of Project Run and Play! Thanks to the awesome designers and other sew-alongers, I've got enough inspiration to keep me busy for a while.
It's Boys' Week.
Last summer Daniel picked out this t-shirt from mini-Boden as his favorite.
The layered knit applique effect is my favorite for the boys' t-shirts, but it is So. Much. Work. In fact, I have pants cut and ready to sew. There was no way I could finish them by Friday. For this kind of applique, I have to trace, cut out each piece, layer, machine stitch, bring the threads through to the back and tie them off, and then hand stitch some details. Hours, I tell ya.
Daniel already had an off-white long-sleeved shirt to layer, but Lee needed one. I dove into my stash for this waffle knit and sewed it up right quick. It's so soft. I want one, too.
Once again I used the Flashback Skinny Tee pattern from Made by Rae. That's five so far during Project Run and Play. I've got one more tweak on the neckline and this pattern will be perfect for us. Necklines on knit shirts may be the death of me.
I'm so thrilled to have these photos from our favorite places around town. The first week's pictures were taken at the little Methodist church across the street and on our neighbor's front porch. This week's pictures were taken at the red caboose downtown -- one of the boys' favorite spots to visit. We love our mountain town.
Next week challenge is Valentine's Day themed. I bought the fabric, but I won't be able to get my look finished in time. Fortunately it fits into the "Your Signature Look" category, too. And I've got something simple and sweet planned for the "Men's Shirt" challenge.
Hop on over to Project Run and Play if you've got a minute. The designers and folks sewing along will knock your socks off. Promise.
