Boys Black Camo Set

Finally , I feel like I accomplished something. This is my first boys shorts and shirt , size 4 -from the camo fabric I had leftover from the other two adult shirts.Of Course I made my boo-boos. My first attempt at the neckband I cut it out too narrow & when I sewed it on I hated it-so I tossed that one -ripped the other one off & cut a wider  one.

My second boo-boo was when I cut out the pants - I had two small left over pieces & they would not let me just fold them & cut them out because something was left sticking out somewhere with no fabric. So , my great idea was to cut the strip into two separate pieces of fabric & that way I could lay them out easily . So, I cut them out and went to sew them together & just could not figure out what in the world I had done wrong- yea- that was when the light-bulb went off in my noggin- I had lain both pieces with the fronts facing up -when I should have laid them facing each other!  But I had already embroidered on the bottom of the leg & did not want to lose that little touch -so I found a piece of grey & stitched the camo over top of the grey  to bring the set together.

Then I had the fight with my iron -with it turning itself on and off-on and off- & when I snapped this picture which was the best one - the iron had dribbled drops of water on the shorts & darn it -those drops show up!  Ding Dang it!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a nice day - it started out chilly this morning with a frost & I was so glad I remembered to get my flowers back in. Yea!

I hope you have had a lovely day too!


  1. You did a great job! I am always amazed at how fast you work! You complete a whole top or pants or outfit in one day!!! That would take me a week! Is this one for sale, or a gift? ♥♥♥

  2. Wow. I love it!! I have a top cut out for my granddaughter. I sure hope I can do it!!! You inspire me!
