Tonight my alma mater, Xavier University, plays our crosstown rival, University of Cincinnati. My daughter had a non-uniform school day and could wear red or blue today to show XU or UC loyalty.
I looked at a few shirts at online shops, but given $26 prices for a kids t eeq hey are you she planned on wearing something blue from the closet. On my home yesterday, I realized I could easily craft an XU shirt for her.
A quick stop at Joann for a plain tee (albeit a size too big) and a fat quarter (with a 50% off iPhone coupon of course…does anyone pay full price at Joann?) and I was set.
Stitching around the letters was tedious, but really didn’t take too long.
To help with fit, I traced over an existing t shirt and contoured the side seams. I just cut the sleeves and bottom hem leaving them raw.
My daughter liked it! That’s what counts. Now let’s see who wins tonight’s game!
