I loved this building print, and there was a coordinating taxi cab check that was the same soft, high quality fabric, so I got it even though it’s a bit seizure-inducing. These are a small nod to my brother David, who’s lived in New York City for five years now. :-)
I forgot to take a picture, but the tag is a scrap of tractor ribbon – a small joke.
For the shirt, I sewed a 3/8″ bit of the yellow checkers along the bottom of a strip of buildings, then cut the tops and appliqued them as a city skyline.
Fiddly but fun, and I like the way it turned out against the red shirt.
Goofy cheerful frogs garooming all over, plus a sale table chartreuse lining that isn’t a perfect match but was exactly what I was looking for and complements the raucous jokester frogs.
I got to use my dots ribbon for the tag (even more essential now that H___ almost always puts the pants on himself – the first set in which the ribbons are more for his benefit than ours).
He’s worn the shirt to daycare twice, wasn’t ready to take it off after breakfast and campaigned for wearing his PJ shirt all day. :-) Kind of awesome, it’s so fun to make things he likes. A pity it’s white, but at least I can always make another one later if this one gets too paint-splattered. :-)
