I've been working and crafting away, but with not much to show, so this project from yesterday was a welcome change!
About the same time as I upcycled the 'let's fly' top for the Kinderboy, I bought the Schoolboy a plain navy top from Target. Comfy, but a little boring was the declaration. "I want you to decorate it for me before I wear it". "No problems" say I, putting it in the 'fix it' drawer while I work out what an appropriate motif might be. "What's this?" say I several months later when rummaging through the drawer for something else. Oops. Luckily he loves it, and the delay's already forgiven.
My apologies for the headless photo - its the only one that's in focus, but has him scowling because I made him stop for photos before letting him watch ABC kids!
In the end the inspiration came from a Lego owl he made yesterday morning. Here's a close-up - easy peasy use of a couple of spare bits of Japanese print quilting fabrics.
