Anyone else a Stars Wars geek?
I saw this shirt a few days ago and loved it. I just might have to make it for myself one day. You know, when the leftover twin baby baggage is just a jiggly memory - ha!
With the list of baby-girl projects threatening to overtake my notebook, I thought today would be a good excuse to get in some boy crafting AND try my hand at freezer paper stencils.
The image I used is a pumpkin stencil (I googled "Star Wars pumpkin stencil"). Since I was making two shirts, I sandwiched my printout between two sheets of freezer paper like so:
and cut it all out at once.
(Goober doesn't believe in smiling for pics. But he's happy - really he is!)
Aside, has anyone else noticed (and lamented) the lack of project ideas for older boys? It seems like once they're out of the cute preschooler stage people (and pattern companies) lose interest. And I get that; older boys can be a tough crowd to please. But eight and older boys (and men!) definitely get the short end of the stick: unisex pajamas and mini-me boy's-and-men's outdated ickiness? Gah. I have to admit, most of what I sew for my boys right now is pajamas (natch) and boxers (Yes, my boy wears homemade underwear. The other one goes commando unless I catch him. Don't tell him I told you that.). I must try to amend this situation. Maybe some manly projects are in order? :)
Okay, rant over and back to the shirts. Goober and The Boy were super impressed with these. They turned out exactly how I was picuring them, and what mama doesn't like to hear "Whoa, you made these?"
Yes, I'd say some more freezer paper stencilling is definitely in our future.
In the meantime, May the Fourth be with you.
