3 Shirts for Finn

A friend of mine from Sewing Mamas asked me to do some long-sleeved versions of a couple of my recent boy's shirts. I was happy to do them, as Cathi has been a tremendous inspiration for me - I can pretty easily point to her super-cool boy sewing as the main reason why I bought an embroidery machine in the first place.

I've sewn for Cathi's son before, with rather disastrous results. Not long after I joined Sewing Mamas, she contacted me and asked if I wanted to do a clothing swap. Having only been sewing a bit longer than a year at that point, I was terribly nervous. What pattern to make! What fabric to use! What embroidery design to stitch! It was a little nerve-wracking, to be honest. Well, I finally got everything done and shipped off to Australia. A few weeks later, she very diplomatically asked if I had any leftover ribbing from the necklines of the shirts, as none of them would fit over her son's head. I was pretty mortified, as you can imagine.

Anyway, I hope these will fit over his head. I cut the ribbing extra long, just in case.
