On vacation! Please enjoy this post from 2010.
Julian noticed that I have been sewing a few things for Scarlett and asked me to make something for him. I had hidden two plain Old Navy ringer tshirts in my closet, intending to embellish them in some way for him, but had not yet decided how. I knew he really wanted to be surprised with something new.
I linked to this tutorial last week and thought I’d have a go at it last night. I cut the tie shape from a work shirt that Ryan had tossed in the Goodwill pile. I used fabric glue to set it in place and then zig-zag stitched around the edges. Not sure how it will hold up in the wash, but I thought it was darn cute when he wore it today.
For Julian, the best part was that when he woke up this morning, he found a post-it note on his bed frame that said
Find a new shirt on the coffee table.
When I heard him thump rapidly down the stairs at 6.30 am this morning, I knew he had read the note. Seconds later, he burst into my room cradling his new shirt, telling me he loves it. A lovely SuperMom moment for me.
