Fish Shirt

Some of you may have seen the post regarding the fish pocket cargo pants that I made for my 2 1/2 year old grandson Canaan who lives in England.  His mom is Jessica of Sunny Stitching which is her most fabulous blog.  I mailed the pants to Canaan and the next week started sewing a shirt for him out of the fish fabric used for the pockets on the pants.

While skyping with their family this past weekend, Jessica said they had received the package that also included the pretty pink pillowcase I had made for Evie, Canaan's most lovely 4 year old sister.  Canaan loved his new pants, and Evie loves sleeping on her pink pillowcase.  However, Canaan doesn't want to wear his pants without the shirt.  I had just finished the shirt and am so excited to send it to him.

I used one of my favorite shirt/pants patterns Simplicity 3856 and the so cheerful fish fabric purchased at our local JoAnn's Fabric Store.


Finished Fish Shirt for Canaan!

More to come....watch for Fish Dress, another Fish Shirt and Fish Shoelaces.
Sure hope the fish are biting!
