Boys like constructions vehicles, dinosaurs and color blocking. OK, maybe it's just me who likes the last one. Gotta use up all those knit scraps! Since I went scrap happy last week making dresses for my niece, it only seem fair that her brother get some new duds too. The patterns selected were the Oliver + S raglan and ShwinDesigns "Any time at all" tee. Here they are kicking back together.
I've blogged about the Oliver + S shirt before and it's a pattern that has graced my sewing table many times. On this shirt the pocket was left off since the dinosaur fabric is a ribbed jersey. I'd rather stab myself with a seam ripper than try to sew a pocket on some ribbed jersey via the sewing machine. Since my nephew doesn't have a penny fetish, unlike a certain boy in my household, he shouldn't care.
You know what boys also like? A bowl full of names waiting to be pulled for a prize draw. He carried out the instruction of "Only pick one" perfectly and the winner was Elisa. Congratulations Elisa! Email me your address at knit(dot)n(dot)frog23@gmail and I will put the Sew Wendy book and the fabric into the mail for you.
