What are you most proud of? I like how the vibrant colors really work with the front patch. I only had enough of that to make a pocket, so had to improvise the rest. And, I made the whole thing from two fact quarters and a bunch of scraps!

It makes me so happy to have helped with some inspiration - I love it and I'm sure he will too!! I would love to know how you did the lettering it looks great?? You know Isaac is also using his as a pillow case he loves it so much!! :)

I just drew the letters on with a paint marker and then sewed over the lines with a wide satin stitch on my machine. If you look closely you can see that they stitching is pretty "rustic", but I figured it would look OK for a rough and tumble boy. By the way, I backed the title patch with heavy duty iron-on interfacing, and that made it much easier to stitch.

thanks for that - will have to try it!! :)

Wow, I am glad you shared the lettering, I just thought you had a stitch on your machine. I was jealous of the lettering. I must try this method, how inspiring to know I could make a name too with my machine. thanks
