Yikes! Stripes!

How many striped shirts does a boy need?  Apparently, five is not too many.  

I sewed up this quintet of striped tees for E-Boy the other day.  I got most of these wonderful striped jerseys on clearance from Chez Ami, where you have to buy a two-yard cut of each print.  As I was cutting out the shirts, I realized that a toddler sized tee doesn’t make much of a dent in two yards of fabric.  We may have matching shirts for years to come.  Oh, yes, for those of you with a long memory, the one in front is a duplicate of one we had last year.  Fortunately, I’m the only one in my house who remembers (or cares) what clothes the boy wears from one year to the next.
