I have had a lot of people comment lately that it is hard to sew for boys. And I agree it is easier to sew up cute dresses for girls, however, I can't get enough of making cute T-shirts for little boys. You can always find cheap plain t's and it is so rewarding to embellish them to your liking! I have started a tradition of making my nephews (and soon a niece) birthday shirts to go with their theme. Remington is having a baseball party here in another month and we are doing photos for his invitations this week. I found this adorable stripe t-shirt at Target (my usual go-to place is Old Navy but they didn't have red!). I haven't done much with stripes but I really like the look. I appliqued a baseball on the front...
I sewed messy stitching around it a few times and also for the little lines and then with embroidery thread I added the red stitching.
The back says All Star and then of course a number 2 since it is his second birthday!
The All Star is freezer paper stenciled on and then I took floss and hand sewed around the entire thing! Time consuming, yes, worth it for the look, of course!
Camden loves it so I am guessing it will be a hit for Remington too!
