My Husband Sews a Shirt!

My husband sewed a shirt!

I really wish I had taken a video of him showing this to our 2 year old son. He was in utter disbelief that Daddy had sewed something for him! He was also really happy too….what little boy wouldn’t love a ninja tee? Modeled pictures coming soon πŸ™‚


This was his first time doing any sewing project and he did it all himself. I am bursting with pride πŸ™‚

I did have to try hard to restrain my laughter as he tried to get the cotton lycra to lay flat while he cut out the neck binding but he got it sorted out and did a much better job than I do of actually cutting a straight piece.


And then he got to learn about cutting on the fold πŸ™‚ Β IMG_3464

Next onto the serger! I have a really bad early history with sergers (we’re talking holes in projects!) but maybe his experience with power tools came in handy because he did greatΒ IMG_3525

He did get in a little fight with the neck binding but he prevailed in the end πŸ™‚ And good news…a video tutorial for neck bindings is coming later this week!

  1. What a cool hubby!
    And the fabric – OMG!!! Neeeeed! Where is that from? Don’t tell me it was a custom print somewhere … My son would LOVE a shirt from this! πŸ˜€

  2. I love this! Next you’ll be getting him to help you grow your fabric stash. Hmmm. That’s a good idea. Maybe I should get my husband into sewing too!

  3. I had Scott cut and sew a crib sheet a few weeks ago to see if he could carry on the shop through maternity leave… let’s just say I’ll be closing the shop πŸ™‚ The easiest part for him was actually the serging, who’d have thought!?!

  4. Amy, this is the sweetest thing (Love the pics)! Sewing is not easy, so jumping in and doing such a great job on a t-shirt is amazing. Congratulations!
