A Quick Seven for Ben

I am enjoying quick little sewing projects as I lay around getting strong again.  Sewing is very interruptable, the perfect kind of creative project with a new baby around.

In this case, Ben suddenly remembered that he wanted a seven on his tee shirt because he used to have a "four" tee that was passed on from his friend John.  And he knew that John's mom had sewed it, so mom, make me a seven tee shirt already!


Holding the baby, I directed him to make a newspaper template for the numeral.  Then he pinned it to the fabric of his choice (his favorite green) and some non-fusible interfacing.  I zig-zagged the fabric to the interfacing (no need to get out the iron for fusible interfacing, see) and then shortened and widened the zig-zag and sewed the seven onto his shirt.  Ben chose orange thread - doesn't that look sharp?


Done.  And happy!
