Greetings! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend, if you live in the states, that is. If you don’t live in the states I hope that you too had a wonderful weekend! Our family enjoyed the three day holiday weekend and beautiful weather! Saturday morning Tom and I had a bit of a treat… some time without the kids. My mom came over and played with the kids while Tom and I went thrifting and out to lunch… yay! Did we have any luck? A bit. We found some pink Chuck Taylors for Abby and some Levi’s for the boys. I picked up a few XXL t-shirts with plans to upcycle them into shirts for the boys this fall. I was able to get one done before the weekend was through and I think I love it!
I used Figgy’s Tee For Two pattern for the first time. I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers and friends after seeing the shirts that she had made for her little boy. You can see the post here. It was easy to follow and turned out really well. The fit was great, except for the neck hole. Although it looks fine on, it was a real bear to get over Levi’s head… I almost couldn’t do it! I think I must have done something wrong there, but hope that I can fix it next time around. Take a look…

What do you think? I used one old Beatles t-shirt for the body and another for the sleeves and the neck.
