I am still trying to learn to sew- no, I haven't giving it up already! Finding time is the hard part, but that's hard when trying to do anything with two monkeys to look after! But I did finally get out a pattern I'd bought and figure it out enough to put some shorts together for Lincoln. My first time to do an elastic waist, too. If anyone has an easier way to thread the elastic thru the waistband, please share!
Than I made a little shirt to go with them by just cutting an "L" out of the same gingham and just sewing it on a plain white t-shirt with a straight stitch- good thing an "L" is all straight lines! I just unraveled the edges of the L to avoid having to finish them in any way- and it turned out pretty good, I think! An easy way to "applique" a shirt, cheap & easy! Hopefully it'll last thru little boy messes and washings!
