Okay, so it's not been one-hundred years, but I finally really sewed on my new machine and I had to share with you!
My son has his "Hundredth Day Party" tomorrow at school and was instructed to dress like he was 100 years old. Now, truth be told, he told me that meant he should dress like a skeleton...because "people don't live that long". We talked a bit and decided on a little crafting project.
I'm not sure if you know how hard it is to find long sleeve, plain white t-shirts this time of year...I mean geesh, you'd think it was winter or something, but there were very few to be found anywhere; I snagged one hiding behind some swim trunks.
I ironed Heat n Bond lite onto the back of some woven cotton I pickled up from Hobby Lobby and cut out a tie shape. You'll just have to trust me here...I forgot to take pics along the way, last minute crafting you know! :) The tie got ironed on the t-shirt, and I zig-zagged around it to finish the edges. "Old man" shirt and tie, done!
He needed something to hold up his drawers, so I made a pair of suspenders from some left over "tie" fabric, a yard of elastic, and a pair of mitten clips from the clearance bin (hiding under the flip flop display, lol!).
