Stripe 'J' applique top - competition entry!

Typically for me, I only found out about it yesterday, but thought it might be fun to have a go at I did!
I used the last of the stripe jersey that I made my stripe tee with - I'll just make sure we don't wear them both on the same day lol!

I thought it looked a bit plain for him as it was, so I jazzed it up a bit with a red jersey 'j' applique (cut from an old tee that was too small for him) - he said 'Mummy, that's a 'J' for Jamie! Is it for me?' Bless him!

No pattern, as!

Posing shot....

There's a shadow on my feet, Mummy!

Look at those eyes....they let him get away with murder! (ok, I know this shot has nothing to do with the top, but....I'm his Mummy and I love him! lol!)

Thank you for looking, I can't wait to see the other entries - how exciting!


  1. I love the big red J ... and your little model has amazing eyes!

  2. Great shirt--love the red/white/blue combo. (And your son is adorable.)

  3. Just darling! And I love your little guy's hair!!!

  4. I love that. In fact, I'd love one in my size (and my name starts with J!).

  5. lol Jen I actually have one in my size - but without the applique!

    Thank you for all the comments - I appreciate each and every one! xx

  6. I like your top and the large "j". I'll have to try the large appliqué on a shirt for my son.
    I, too, sew without a pattern. Makes the process so much more exciting, no?

  7. I agree Dieselmonkey - I find it much less confusing, too....patterns seem a long winded way of getting something simple like a tshirt lol! Xx


I love to hear from you, so thank you for posting!

Getting an early start...

Well for some reason, (and trust me, this NEVER happens!), I'm making an early start on things for that most dreaded of C-words... CHRI...
