and this one about killed me.
don’t know why i hate myself…but i do
plus i always use the scraps (usually it’s hair bows for the girls…but i decided bow ties would be fun)
and his ninja drawing on the shirt
but i didn’t know what one do my vest out of…so i shot back to joanns and woke up some boy flannel and star wars fabric and took that home…..
each piece is made the same unprofessional way as i make everything….
an item of clothing from my kids closet as a pattern….
the pants were the hardest part.
he ended up with a mini mc hammer crotch…which caused a wed night of stitch picking…super fun.
the pockets: not that you could really see how to do it…but it’s like the only picture i took…
the k and stripes on the cardigan is actually flocked t-shirt vinyl from expressions vinyl (flocked means fuzzy)
then i made a wholllle bunch of bow ties…
let’s move onto the vest….
its one of my favorite parts:
i bought 20 inches of the plaid and star wars (which was just enough for my on the small side 6 year old boy)
and a few inches of black for the binding….
i cut three pieces…..(and took horrible pictures) so i drew horrible pictures to show you…
then i cut three pieces out of the star wars…and put wrong sides together…
so the patterned sides are both facing out….
and then i sewed stripes across…
(lucky for me..the flannel had a great pattern and i just did every other square…..
then i took some stuffing…and stuffed it…very lightly…a little went a long way….you can puff the sucker out if you wanted too….
then i sewed the top shoulders…and the two sides to the back panel. put the outside fabric on the inside when you sew…so i laid the back piece on top of these two pieces plaid side down….
then i made some bias tape….and went up the front and arm holes…..
oh…and i forget to mention the faux pockets. they are just strips of fabric made to look like pockets….(sewed on after it was stuffed)
you could also add an awesome pocket on the inside to hold star wars toys….
