Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Happy Boy...

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and you know what that means - - - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Time to share our week's accomplishments and do a little happy dance!  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week I've been working madly on projects using Joel Dewberry's new fabric line, Modernist, that will be revealed on Monday - but I've got one I want to share with you today!

Nathanael was a little disappointed when the girls got new outfits for the Rambling Rose reveal, so I decided to make him a shirt this time...


The fabric is Arrowhead in Emerald from Joel Dewberry's Modernist collection, and I used Butterick 3475 for the design.  I did change it a bit, using snaps instead of buttons.  I HATE making buttonholes!! (Can I get an amen??)


This boy REALLY loves green - it's the color of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, his favorite cartoon.  This was the perfect fabric for his shirt!


A quick face cleaning by mom before his pictures... then he was so excited about his new shirt and having his picture made, he started jumping up and down!!





I'd say that's a pretty happy kid!!


So - - - can we get a whoop whoop??

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!  

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's making you dance a little happy dance?

Share - because we want to dance right along with you - 
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!!

Hugs!

Sarah

  1. It made me smile to see your grandson's joy with his new shirt. I don't like making buttonholes either. I did a fairly good job on my "old, old" Elna. I love my new Elna, but I hate the way buttonholes are made with the new machines.

  5. "Amen" on the buttonholes for sure! It's been so long since I made buttonholes, I'm not sure I could do it. I LOVE the pics of Nathanael in motion. So fun!

  6. I don't sweat button holes - lucky to have a machine that handles them nicely. He does look like on HAPPY boy and love that geo design! Super matching those directionals!

  7. Oh Sarah! I'm so sorry! I had trouble pulling up a photo and then it posted three times! Can't find a way to delete two of them. Your posts are always sooo encouraging! This little guy is sooooo cute!

  9. Seeing a reaction like Nathanael's makes it all worthwhile, doesn't it! Great looking shirt. (I don't like buttonholes either.)

  10. I don't mind making the buttonholes...but you have to sew on the buttons--and the recipient expects them to like up with the buttonholes. Sigh!

  11. You can totally get an Amen! Buttonholes are disgusting creatures. ;D Cute shirt!

  12. I love how excited he is with his shirt. Way to go!! The color and design are fantastic. I find buttonholes scary. My buttonholer is a featherweight Singer attachment that moves the fabric in a zigzag motion. I used to use it all the time, but haven't had the courage in years.

  15. I don't make clothes, but it looks like it wasn't too hard to make that little shirt - especially with snaps instead of buttons and button holes. And, as happy as that made him, I bet it won't be the last one he gets! That's the kind of reception any maker/giver would love to get. How gratifying when somebody truly loves and appreciates what you make for him ❤
