3 Boys in Mountain T-shirts

Have you listened to this week’s podcast? Episode 23 is about toy management…and where there are kids, there are toys to be managed! Listen to it here.

More boys in t-shirts, just like last week!  But hey, boys in t-shirts are a very real thing around here!  And now that there’s a new boy, there seems to be a renewed desire in my to sew things for my boys!

To create these shirts, I grabbed a fun jersey knit fabric from my stash, and a solid knit in a coordinating color.  Currently, this specific print is only available printed on minky which is pretty amazing too.  But Raspberry Creek Fabrics has really awesome boy fabrics, so feel free to plan all the shirts for boys!

I used the Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan Tee pattern, as usual for the two bigger boys.  This pattern is a staple around here, as you’ve probably noticed!  To switch it up a little, I used the accent fabric in different places (sleeves and pocket vs front and back) and they love it.

For Baby, I used the Brindle & Twig bodysuit pattern.  It also is a staple around here for babies and toddlers.  With 1 yard of this mountains fabric, I actually had enough to sew 2 onesies for him in this fabric.  He is of course adorable and much loved in both of them!

One problem I’m having with sewing baby clothes is getting the snaps to work right.  It might be that I got ahold of a cheap set of metal snaps (I ordered them off of Amazon) but if I hammer hard enough to get them to stay in the fabric and not fall out when the snaps are pulled apart, then the hole is pounded into a distorted shape and the snap prong doesn’t fit.  It’s quite frustrating!  I’ve heard good things about plastic snaps and am considering trying some of those.  But any suggestions would be appreciated!

In these photos, the boys are wearing store-bought jeans, but there’s a new pattern in the Project Run & Play shop, Super Tough Jeans, that I can’t wait to try out.  By the looks of it, my boys might even be able hand down a pair of jeans using this pattern!  (Unheard of with RTW jeans!)

As usual, these boys are delighted with anything and everything I sew for them, which always inspires me to sew more things for them.  And when they’re this adorable…how can I refuse?
