j is for JACK

Jack Shirt
Whoa…. it’s been like over 2 months since my last post… 
{I think I’m over my creative block}
                      at least I made something today!!
Jack Shirt Smiley
My Jack Jack has a shirt to wear on his first day of kindergarten come Wednesday.  Just look at that sweet little smile…  it sure warms a mummy’s heart. :)

I have had this idea in my head for about 4 months or so.  Today after I put Finn down for his nap, a little voice whispered in my head, “Enough already.  Get off your arse and make Jack his shirt for school.”

I had a white pair of pajama pants that I never wear and decided to repurpose them for Jack’s project.  Em helped me pick out the blue hue for the stamps.  I stamped, cut, and ironed away adorning the plain little yellow shirt that had been sitting, waiting for so long.  Then, I framed the patch with a long straight stitch and a shortened zig zag stitch for a bit of added detail.

So, thank you Janette for the whisper.  You are golden and I can’t wait for that sweet baby girl to get here!

I love that! I especially love the frame... something so simple and everyday, and it just adds so much to the shirt! I didn't even realize what stitches they were until I read it! Thanks so much for linking up!

MY GIRL IS BACK!!!! YOU BETTER BE!!! I've missed you sOOO much!! Love the shirt!! So cute and memorable! I still can't believe school starts soo soon there!!

Can't wait to hear how his first day goes!

I love this idea! I need to do this for my son when he goes to mother's day out this year! Plus sooo many people argue with me that Aubrey is NOT a boys name.. when in fact it is in the "boys" section of all baby name books.. and when I tell them this, they ask how to spell it (as if that reallly makes a differnece)... Maybe this would help : ) Thanks for linking up to Craft and Tell!


Liberty!!!=) I'm probably the last person on earth but I had NO IDEA you were even more talented than I already knew you were;) I didn't know this crafty side existed! I just joined the blogging world a few months ago and I just now stumbled across your treasure of a blog!! Love love love it and I ADORE this shirt!! I've taken time off work for the past several months to fully focus on Christian and Sunny but I think I need to go back for a while to earn some spendin' money so I can buy one of everything I'm seeing!!;) Love it girl..keep it up! April <><
