paper plane t-shirt for grady

so here is a paper airplane t-shirt that i made for grady for this contest. i apologize that is in not ironed, but come on...i have an antsy 4 year old, fading light, and excited dog to contend with! who has time to heat up the iron!

super detail of the stitching


detail of the plane. i liked the rough edges of this. i think it will be even better after a few washings!

"mommy, i thought you said only 2 more!" or... is he from europe and is trying to tell me something that we americans only do with 1 finger?


so, hello there friends. i know that i haven't blogging in a while...ahem 2 years...and i am sorry to disappoint you, but this isn't really a real post either. i am entering a t-shirt that i made for grady into a contest on a blog that i read, i am momma hear me roar. if it makes you feel any better, now that i am writing this, i really do miss the late night cataloging our crazy lives! i can't say that i will start back, but i have made those empty promises before...let's just all be surprised if it happens!

This is just so cute! I found your shirt via Pinterest and have been meaning to make one for my son. With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, I used your idea for inspiration for ours:
