I'm working on a separate project that involves painting shirts. When I told my son, he immediately said, and I quote: "A rocket shirt! A shirt with a rocket! Can you make me a rocket shirt with a rocket on it?! Rocket! Rocket! Rocket! Rocket!"
Okay, you got me - not a DIRECT quote, per se - but pretty close. Basically, he really wanted a rocket on a t-shirt. And rockets weren't where I was going with my other project, so this new project was born.
It's the Recess Raglan again, this time for him. I really should have made the next size down but our short-sleeved days are coming to an end and I'd like him to be able to wear this next year, too. I googled an image of a rocket, made some tweaks to make it freezer-paper-stencilable, and the rest is history.
His favorite part is the starry shoulder (he requested a moon but I wasn't up to task - he was gracious enough to accept my subsitution).
My favorite part is his love of his very own one-of-a-kind made-with-love Rocket Shirt.
