Guitar Shirt #5

Introducing guitar shirt #5.

Yes, #5. It started out with a onesie when he was 3 months old, which was actually part of Matt's first Father's Day, as a way to encourage him (Matt, that is) to keep playing that guitar. And now, we've grown out of three. I made a short-sleeved one, hoping his current one would last until spring, but I finally decided that it was too small, and he couldn't wait for his "tar shirt". So, #5 it is.

I don't understand why I don't see more of this kind of applique on craft and parenting blogs. For the time and money spent, this is the thing I make which offers the most satisfaction. I spent two evenings sewing last week and came up with 6 new shirts for the little guy (only two were guitars). Oh, and did I mention how perfect it is for covering up a stain that just won't come out or freshening up a hand-me-down?

And why, you might ask, would I keep making guitars when the world is full of inspiration and cute shapes like ducks or birds? Well, behold the following future album covers.

Rock on, son. Rock on.

It looks like someone needs a new Johnny Cash shirt.
