There is quite enough everyday 'stuff' going on to be picked on and bullied for without introducing clothes into the equation!
|Fab Four in Uniform|
I tend to make things in 'fives',polo tops,shorts,trousers whatever.
It means that everyone has a clean uniform everyday and it hands down well.
The twins rugby's were getting too small(and worn out)and Son&Heir has been juggling two woollen grubbers I made him,so it was time to make some more.
Usually I make this style here with some cotton knit I purchased in bulk several years back.
They are not very thick or warm in winter though.
After trawling Ebay I found a bundle of wool/poly knit 8m+bits. A few bids later it was mine!
I had eyed of the Nature Walk pattern by oliver+s as a potential school jumper,but after seeing the lovely Peta's I knew it was.
With the width of the fabric I was able to cut out 8 rugby's with pieces left to make smaller ones.
I eliminated all the seams and sewed with a smaller seam allowance.
|Yes,thats what eight rugby's look like!|
I felt like sewing them took weeks......mainly because I had a house full of sick chicks and only quick sewing sessions.
They actually went together really well and quite promptly.
They are very warm and snuggly. The Twins are chuffed!
I am still trying to decide whether I stencil the school letters on(or not).
