It has been quite sometime since I made clothes for my husband
. Sometimes I feel a bit guilty about it, I want to make many things for him, but it’s that he doesn’t need any more clothes that he already has now. He takes care of his clothes and of course he doesn’t grow up quickly like Sidra that he always need some new clothes.
I made him this jacket
for his last birthday. He still wears it and it still look as good as new. I was thinking of making another jacket or a pair of pants, but then I decided to make a long-sleeved T-shirt because that is something that he would wear often. I’ve made him a long-sleeved T-shirt
before, and it’s one of his favourite.
The T-shirt is made from organic cotton knit. It’s very comfortable because the fabric was intended for babies ( bought in the section for babies’ fabric). I finished the neckline with bindings, not very neat though. The sleeves and hem are finished in simple zigzag stitches.
I made my own label from a piece of linen fabric, stamped with fabric ink pad. The stamp that I used came as a big piece of rubber stamps with all the letters. I just cut my selected letters and put it on a cork to make my own stamp.
The word ‘Pretty World’ is from a song by Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66 that he gave to me before we met. And that’s how my world is since then.
