St Patrick's T-Shirt

Since I do send monthly packages to my grandchildren, I have been looking for St. Patrick's Day Socks for them.  Canaan and Evie live in England so I need to allow 2 weeks shipping time for their package to arrive.

I started sending socks in the monthly packages but the ones for Valentines I sent Canaan did not fit him.  Luckily Evie's did.....I was sad that Canaan's were too big so really wanted to get the right sizes for St. Patrick's Day package. 

Well....found some but they look the same size as ones sent in February.  I got them anyway at Joann's and also decided last minute {of course:) } to make a t-shirt for Canaan and simple dress for Evie.

Joann's had some nice green knit fabric I purchased for each and got the notions required.  I already had the patterns so rushed home to wash the fabric and start sewing.  (I am a slow sewer so this was a huge challenge).

Using the pattern below for Canaan's t-shirt, I was able to complete it by late afternoon and really liked how it turned out.  I had used this pattern once before but it seemed easier this time.  View D with the long sleeve insert into the short sleeve was my choice.

 Below are some photos of the t-shirt.  It was a lot nicer looking than the photos show.  I thought the socks were cute also, but have a feeling they are too big.

I elected to not put a shamrock, etc on it so it can be worn year round.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Canaan.....I love you
