Back to School: Space Robot Henley

Back to School Just-Joshin.com

Next up, another favorite from Peekaboo Pattern Shop, the Boardwalk Henley (Affiliate Link.) This was another print I found (and loved) from Spoonflower, but in order to stretch my one yard of custom printed fabric, I mixed in some solids and some clearance-rack stripes. Both the blue and orange were scraps I had that coordinated perfectly, and the stripes I used in the sleeves were on clearance for $2/yard. This was definitely a learning experience. I attempted to use the twin needle to hem it, but failed, and my buttonholes are terrible (I have since learned my machine has a special setting for knit buttonholes.) 

My kids don’t care, though, they love their robot space rocket shirts. This pattern has an option for a hood or collar, and can be made into a shirt or a dress. Next time I might use snaps instead of buttons, but I love this style shirt and will definitely be making more of these.
