Polar Bear Raglan T-shirts

If you guessed that I’m on a stash-busting, raglan t-shirt making, boy sewing streak, you’d be correct! So once again, I pulled out the Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirt pattern and got to work. Enter two polar bear raglan t-shirts.

This time, there was just enough of the Birch Organics, super soft cotton knit fabric left to use for sleeves and pockets on two shirts for my 2 youngest boys. They would also enjoy these fishing lures:

And these pencils:

Or these dogs:

But I digress! I love using a statement fabric to dress up a plain t-shirt. However because these shirts are cream, and my boys are boys, I’ve asked them to save these for nicer occasions like going to town rather than everyday occasions like wrestling in the grass. We’ll see…

I don’t remember where my cream fabric came from, but this would be a similar good quality cream knit fabric.  Art Gallery Solid Jersey Knit White Linen Fabric

Since the boys are fairly close to the same size and it’s difficult to tell one shirt from the other at a glance, I made the pockets different. On David’s shirt, there are 2 bears and the pocket is square.

On Lowell’s shirt, the pocket is rounded on the bottom, and there is a bear with two birds on his back. Just enough of a difference to make it easier on laundry days and when they are getting dressed.

Last time I made these boys raglan t-shirts, I was unhappy with the way the neckbands turned out. At the suggestion of one of our sweet followers, I shortened the neckband slightly and am much happier with the way these lay. Always in search of the perfect neckband around here!

I sewed up one size for each of these boys so they will hopefully still fit once summer and hot weather arrives.  It also looks like I did the same thing when buying their pants!

But boys grow so fast, that it’s a stab at having to do less sewing.  Which doesn’t really matter if I’m trying to sew through my stash!  However I do have more boy than girl fabrics.

I’ve probably mentioned it before, but these two boys are so fun!  They are the only two of our 8 kids that have a sibling next to them of the same sex.  So that makes it extra fun is so many ways.

That’s all I have for you today except for about 50 more cute photos of these boys in their new polar bear raglan t-shirts!  Just kidding, leave me a comment about boys.  Or boys in white clothes!
