Answer to dreamdesigner's question: The can is green and white and the title is Fabric Stabilizer. It's made by Sullivan's. I suppose it's a lot like spray starch, but I'm not absolutely sure. It's marketed for embroidery, lace making, heirloom sewing and applique.

Your color combinations are really nice. I'm going to alter the neckline (perhaps widening and adding small ruffles, which is easy to do and looks cute) and make this for my granddaughters. I almost always use self fabric for the ribbing, but cut the opening slightly larger and/or cut the "ribbing" longer than usual.

Nice shirt! I have this one marked for the future in my Ottobres but haven't gotten to it yet. There is so little variation sometimes in boys' patterns that this one really stood out, and also a great way to use up smaller pieces of knit.
