But hey, normally I remember such things when they are over. So I took this as a sign and set to work. About two hours later, I had a shirt for my younger son. This came together faster than you can say "quick and easy"!
This is pattern # 4, I made the biggest size (92, I guess that's maybe a 24 mo. or 2T in American sizes), and it fits him just fine. I had picked up this knit a looong time ago at Joann's, it's acutally tiny stars all over. I have to admit that the print reminds me a bit of pj's, but I did not have anything else at hand. The only thing that I changed: I made the sleeves an inch longer and omitted the cuffs. Instead I just used a twin needle to finish the seam.
I'm happy with the end result, and since it's almost foolproof, I can now buy some really nice knit fabric and make him a couple more.
How about you guys? Do you sew for your kids at all?
