The aunt and her baby

2. März 2007
I really DID some sewing lately.
It took me three evenings to finally finish some very easy shirts (including ripping my collar three times!):

Now my nephew and I will go to the pirate´s meeting in STYLE!

My shirt is just another version of "New Look 6160", pimped with a skull and crossbones patch that came along with my christmas present from Kerstin and a small embroidered button from Sonja (Thank you, Sonja!).

The baby´s tee is "Ottobre Design" (03/2006, mod. 13) - a quick and easy basic t-shirt, sized to fit him in summer.
Simply said: The leftovers from my shirt were too big to just throw them away, but too small to make anything for me from it except maybe some sleeves for another t-shirt.

I really love how the cute embroidery (from Farbenmix) on the front turned out!
You might recognize those skull motifs, they´re all around in blogland, and now here´s mine - a little simpler, not SO very colorful, but I like it... :)
