ernie shirt

The littlest in the family is crazy for Ernie these days. He calls him oooo-nee, which is unbearably cute. So what the hell, why not make an ernie shirt? Dana even has a tutorial for one. I didn’t print out her pattern, but I did look at her shirt as I cut out all the felt bits.  She adds a little embroidery, which is a nice touch, but I was feeling lazy, so I just top stitched instead. Now that I think about it my kids don’t have any licensed characters on their clothes,  but the baby, well the baby always get what he wants doesn’t he?

  13. I super love this. I hear you about the shifting line on character clothes. I don’t want them to be tiny billboards, but then again I completely impulse bought a pair of The Count new balance sneakers (marked down to 4 bucks! and really, the Count!) only to have my son inform me they were GIRLS shoes. oops. is it bad that I am still hoarding them?
