For the Casual Gentleman....
Remember the ruffle picture shirts?
I was dying to make a boy's version for my nephew, Jack (or Cpt. Cheeks as we sometimes call him), so I got this little solid green shirt at Walmart, and used scraps from other t shirts in white, grey, and red, to make a collar and striped tie. He's such a little gentleman!
To make the collar, just measure the neck and cut out two pieces, shaped roughly like this:
Lay the two pieces on top of each other, and stitch all the way around the edges. Then sew them around the neck of your shirt! Cute, cute! :o)
I'm having trouble finding the time to search for tutorials/ideas to feature on my sidebar, so if you see any cute ones, please do pass them on! Thanks!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!
LOVE. Seriously. *sigh* I need more TIME before Christmas!! My little guy NEEDS one of these!ReplyDelete

Excellent idea and beautiful photos!
I feel the need to have children so I can make cute things for them :DReplyDelete
I have a new tutorial up if you want to feature it, I don't know if you can be featured twice.
This is just plain adorable -- and a nice twist on the onsie-and-tie shirts! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Disney! This is lovely. I must make it...immediately x 2!ReplyDelete
Very cute! I've been looking for ideas for for my 2 nephews. Did you ruffle the strips or just stitch them on flat?ReplyDelete
I just stitched them on flat! I don't think the boys would be into the ruffles ;o)ReplyDelete
Haha, that is what I figured, just thought I'd ask.ReplyDelete
