It’s been slowly warming up so the kids are almost needing some short sleeved shirts. I wanted to test out some different fabrics from My Fabric Designs, so I decided to order two different fat quarters of organic interlock knit. I decided to make them both raglan tees using the free raglan shirt kids pattern, so I get the best use of the fat quarters. I didn’t love the pattern, but that’s what I get for using a free one instead of purchasing one. 

But I did love working with the organic cotton knit! It’s sturdy but soft. It’s not transparent and will hold up to lots of wear and washes. I didn’t have any problems with sewing it or using a twin needle on it. It wouldn’t work for a drapey style, but I might use it for a tee for myself. *Scroll to the end for the giveaway!*

Fabric GIVEAWAY and Kids' Raglan Tees

I ordered some pretty floral fabric for Claire. I love the white background and colors. I matched it with some purple heathered jersey on the sleeves and neckband. It was leftover from a t-shirt I cut up to make Claire some leggings. It does look a lot like pajamas when it’s all matched up, but I love this cute tee. Claire likes looking for the little birds on her tee. It’s perfect for spring.

I love my little Miss Sassy Pants.

Fabric GIVEAWAY and Kids' Raglan Tees

I wanted something masculine but fun for Henry. I was really worried about it looking like pajamas. I feel like a lot of boy prints can read pajamas really easily. I decided to get some car and town fabric and pair it with a graphic print on the front to really make it look like a shirt and not pajamas. I cut up a heathered blue tee to use for the front and reuse the matching neckband.

I used freezer paper and fabric paint to make an Autobot symbol for the front. I felt like the cars and roads fit well with the Autobot theme. Unfortunately, I thinned the fabric paint too much so it bled a little bit. I decided to add some white stitching around the symbol to solidify the design.

Henry LOVES his “Octimus Crime” (Optimus Prime) shirt. I don’t think it reads pajamas, do you?
