**I'm updating this with a link to the Lego Man template. Just in case you want to make you own. Look for the link at the end of this post!**
I'm putting up a quick post, but it's not like I have anything major to say or show. I do have a couple of projects that are sitting on top of my washing machine (my workspace) just waiting for me to have the energy to finish them. Tomorrow two of my three little ones will be out of my hair for a couple of hours, so maybe I'll make some headway.
Sew for tonight, I only have one project. It might not seem like much, but know that it was made with lots of love and actually took a tad bit longer to make then I had anticipated. (Look at all those pieces I sewed around!!)
My George was invited to his first drop off party this past Saturday. The party was Lego themed, so I wanted to make a lego birthday shirt to go with our present. After a quick search on Etsy to see other Lego men shirts, I had a vision of what I wanted. I drew up a pattern, cut out all my felt pieces, and used a TON of pins to keep my Lego man in place while I sewed around all those pieces.
I had a little t-shirt crisis going into this project. I usually get my plain t-shirts at Target, but this seasons short sleeve shirts all have pockets on them. I've taken pockets off before, but they leave small holes, so after searching around I settled on a striped shirt from Old Navy. Of course, this required a fast phone call to my sew sister while my kids ran wild around Old Navy. Annee assured me the stripes would work. And, indeed they did.
And there you have my Lego Man Birthday shirt. I have two more birthday shirts to make, maybe some birthday crowns, and then I have some cute scrappy placemats to finish. More to come soon! I hope!!
