One thing that kept us busy is that my big boy Mouse turned THREE!
He has wanted a space theme for some time so I thought I could make some rocket t-shirts for him and Tigger to wear to the party.
My wonderful in-laws have been digging out old shirts and tees for me to use and I happened to find an awesome grey t-shirt form 1998! It was XL and used to be mine. I must have got my brothers one by mistake I think!
It has a shirt, pants, jersey and shorts all in one.
It is fantastic and so retro. I love it!!
I didn't want the print on the t-shirt so I used the inside non printed sides for cutting out my patterns.
I got enough material from the big tee to make a size 1 and a size 3 short sleeve shirts!
For Tiggers one I had to do the front and back pieces in halves but was able to sew the pieces together to make a whole front and back section.
Then I found alot of scrap material to make my rockets.
I used Blue t-shirt material fro the rocket body.
Red t-shirt material for the flames and white fluffy material for the rocket windows.
I then found some sticky transfer iron on paper to get all the bits to sew together. This turned into a disaster as the white fluffy material melted onto the iron!!
So I ended up just pinning those bits on before sewing them.
I sewed the Rockets on just with a simple straight stitch. I have done it properly before with tiny zig zag stitch but I wanted this to be quick and simple.
Mouse had a fantastic party and a great time with his rocket t-shirt.
