The Third Grade Tee

When I asked O last week if he wanted to wear his purple and silver tee for the first day of school, he said, "Aren't you going to make me a new shirt?  You always make me a new shirt!"  Which is true, except for last year when he was adamant that he did NOT want a special shirt.  I was a little sad that he had outgrown that tradition already, so I was happy to have a request again this year.

We went through my stash together and looked through some Ottobres before settling on a color-blocked Charlie Tee.  He was very specific, so I sketched it out for approval before starting. The pattern comes with some color-blocking suggestions, but he had other ideas, so I used the base pattern and split the front piece into equal thirds and added seam allowances.   It must have turned out how he envisioned, because I can't remember the last time he was so excited about something I made him.  His face lit up and he started clapping.  It was adorable.
