Great shirt for your brother. nice pictures of him and the car, you've made him 2 shirts now you will have him so spoiled you won't have time to sew for the other

Another great version of this shirt, and your brother looks cool and happy in it. It's so exciting that you got a coverstitch machine! Does this mean you'll be even MORE productive? :)

GREAT shirt! I love the use of contrasting fabric. The kid is cool beyond words!!! Great job!

The shirt looks great -- I love the way you flatlocked the sleeves. Congratulations on your new Coverpro. What a terrific gift from Annette and your parents. I'm sure you'll put it to good use.

GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ, it took you long enough to update your review! Heh-heh-heh. As for version 2, I LOVE IT! I especially like the black with the Dale Earnhardt fabric, and that stitching down the arm. You realize, of course, that when we lived in Virginia, Richard Petty (Sr.) was driving Car No. 43 in PETTY BLUE, and my neighbors who I babysat for (three kids, 50 cents/hour, and I cleaned their house, too!) had a Mercury Cyclone fastback, white with red stripes and red interior. I LOVED THAT CAR. Of course, we weren't QUITE old enough to drive, so instead we walked to and fro (barefooted), and when we saw a cool car going down the road, we'd say, "VETTE: buh, buh, buh." "GOAT, buh, buh, buh." "ROAD RUNNER, buh, buh, buh." (My best friend's brother had a Road Runner.) I digress, but I STILL want a hot pink '68 Charger, and some day I'll have one! At any rate, Tyler's looking MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVELOUS in his new shirt. Now as for the CoverPro, the only question remaining is: What Pantone color ARE those knobs anyway? Inquiring minds want to know!

Cool shirt! I like it better with the black and money fabric mix. All-over money fabric would have been too much. He definitely looks the part when seated in that car. You make me feel so guilty that I didn't sew much for my brothers and sisters when I was young. I'm impressed with all that you do for your family.

Great shirt! It looks like it fits him great and he looks so happy with it. What a great sister you are to sew something for your brother!

Very nice shirt for a very nice looking young man. They say girls are attracted to money! The car's not too shabby either.

Nicely made. Your brother looks ever so handsome in his new shirt. Love the fun fabric touches and the fabulous topstitiching details.

Tyler looks absolutely fantastic in this shirt - like a movie star! Great job, love the stitching on the sleeves - it looks super-professional.

What a fun shirt!

Wow . . . this is ULTRA cool! I agree with everyone about the perfection of using the solid with the print. Love the shots with the car and the sunglasses! Not only does Tyler have a great one-of-a-kind shirt, he has a great one-of-a-kind sister.

the shirt turned out really good it fit real nice . he look's real cool in his dad's car

I love it! I think it looks even better combining the money print with the black, than it would have if you'd had enough to make the whole thing in the money print. He's got to love knowing he has such a great one-of-a-kind shirt!

This is the coolest shirt! I think it was a happy accident that you didn't have enough to make the whole shirt in the money fabric - it is so retro and fun with the print/solid mix.

I like the way you blocked this mixing a print with a solid! And your DB looks soo cool in this! It goes perfectly with his cool shades, too! He is definitely MR. COOL and he is lucky to have a sister like you!

Wow!!!! It's Mr. Viva Las Vegas looking so cool in in his new shirt! Clever and stylish use of the "Money Talks a la Trump" fabric with the black! High Five (how about high millions +++) to a generous sister like you!

How perfect is that? This cracks me up - leave it up to a Jr. Hi (or Early Highschool) boy to want a money shirt! it's definitely "cool" and I like the details you added to it. Nice job. - and how lucky your brothers are!

Very cool - I am glad to see your review because I just got fabric to make one of these shirts for my littlest guy.

He looks so happy with his shirt! Great job, it looks really nice on him.

That's a nice shirt. You get big sister cool points for this.
Annette1 said... (3/21/09 5:48 PM) Reply
WOW! The COOLNESS factor is SKY HIGH on this shirt, and the MONETARY VALUE is the same -- ha! I love the black combined with the print (nice designer touch there) and I REALLY like that STITCH on the sleeves, which I'll be expecting you to teach me, of course! I LOVE the picture with the SUNGLASSES in the NOVA. :o)) PERFECT-A-MUNDO!
