More T’s for KCW

Like I said on Monday, we’re fixing the things in my mending bag this week! I don’t think I’ll be featured on any of the KCW features, but it needs to get done!


Here’s another one you might remember! About a year ago I made the monster tee! I was so proud of myself for sewing with knits! I loved this shirt. I was kinda rigging my machine to use the double needle and it was a pain! the thread kept getting twisted and breaking….


Then the hem came out. I threw it in the mending bag and forgot about it!


But it’s back! And I figured out how to set my machine up properly to do the double needle and it went so smoothly! And the hem is fixed.


And the kiddo is excited to have him monster shirt back!


So then I moved on to the taxi shirt! I wish I could find a picture of the kiddo wearing this when they were pj’s. We bought this in NYC about 3 years ago. The pj’s fit then. It was kinda like a onesie with legs.


It fit, but it was kinda funny, because it was so wide! The legs and the sleeves were the right size for a 2T. But the width wasn’t. It was super wide! And three years later, the sleeves are a bit short for a 5T.


So I cut off the legs and it still fits! 3 years later! I hemmed the bottom. I was going to take off the sleeves and add red ones, but then decided that since the arms still fit, I just made it a short sleeved t-shirt instead!


More KCW done. You?

    CUTE photo shoot with antics and smiles from your son! So you’re finding “time” now to mend, recycle & fix sewing on kids’ clothes… GREAT! Monster T print is so cute and the NEW YORK taxi shirt is wearable as short-sleeved, 3 years old as a pj top. SMART mom! Sarah in Minneapolis
