If you missed my post on Friday - I planned out what I was going to make this week. Mmmm or my 'no worries, I can do this, pie in the sky, never going to happen' inspiration.
The idea is that you spend just one hour a day making clothes for your children - that can include cutting out patterns and fabric although it seems most bloggers/sewists do that the week prior so they can just concentrate on making the clothes during the week.
Well I have an INSANELY busy week this week - working four days, out tonight with a friend, tentative plans tomorrow with another visiting friend, working Wednesday night ... you get the idea.
I didn't want to miss the fun though so I *may* have made a few things yesterday. I hope to do a few more this week but might not sure until next week.
Blank Slate Vintage V neck Tshirt
First I wanted to make something for my little man. I let him choose the fabric - this lovely soft red stripe knit. I recently ordered a swatch from Spoonflower of their new performance knit (here is the mini moustache). It is rather slippery to sew with so don't look too closely at that stitching. Master 7 loved the little mini moustache pocket though and that's what counts!

Not many photos of his face as he had a bad reaction yesterday (I think pollen?) and had rather swollen eyes. He was very self conscious.
This should have been a really quick sew but I was completely stumped on attaching the neck ribbing. Even asked hubby for help - mental note for future, don't bother! Then I had one of those moments. It all just made sense. Kinda heard the choirs singing - ahhhhhh. Got it! Thinking back, it is sort of obvious but I just didn't get it from the description or the photos.

Fabric: Knit I recently bought from a friend packing up and moving to Sydney - yay!
Difficulty (1-10 scale with 1 being easy and 10 hard): well I will say 7 but really it is easy once you work out the vneck which is not that hard lol
Time: less than an hour - including cutting the fabric.
