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.

    I LOVE stripes on boys, especially when paired with jeans! My own boy, now 15, had the same pair of shoes in different sizes for several years. He’s picky and once we found something he liked with a good price at Costco, we just kept replacing them a 1/2 size at a time!
    Please stop by my blog when you have time, I’m doing a giveaway through Friday, 10/23. Hugs, Leslie
