I've never attempted this before. A first. I bought knit fabric at Fabric Depot's outdoor sale for $3.00/yard, I got a pattern (by Figgy's - Tee For Two), and away I went. I traced and cut last night, went over design options with my 4-yr-old this morning before school, and sewed the whole thing while fighting off an active 2 year old this afternoon.
It was actually pretty easy - and I'm generally not a knits person. He loves his new pirate ship shirt! It's pretty darn cool looking, for being made by his Mom ;)
I think I'll make a bunch of these, since I have like 10 yards of knits now, and I only used about a 1/2 for this. Cheers All, hope back to school is treating you all well!
