My hubby thinks I have more clothes than him. Probably true if it weren't for all the 100s of tee shirts shoved in every crevice of his closet. Recently he parted with one (one!) and I decided last night to try to repurpose it into a small fry shirt for wee one. I realized my inadequate knowledge about sewing on stretch fabrics as soon as I started. The plain old straight stitch doesn't really work when you try to stretch out a neck to go over the head or things like that. Guess I'll have to call Granny Pumpkin and get a over-the-phone tutorial. But, for a first attempt it worked okay. And if I can perfect it into some pants and jumpers, then I'll have a potentially huge wardrobe for the little guy, made entirely out of punk shirts. Tres trendy, right?
