November Challenge: Really cool skate boarder

It is so hard to find fabrics for boys. Especially for boys in the age 5-6 where being cool is really important, but they still got their own idea of what cool is (not influenced by what everyone else thinks). Thank God for internet! This way you can browse for fabrics from all over the world. Look together at them in the sofa, get them delivered to your door step and don't have to drag the kids to the fabric shop. Again. They really don't get the same thrill out of it as mum does...

Well. Skateboarders are REALLY cool, so this fabric got approved. It is a light weight cotton fabric and very soft and stretchy. I decided to use a raglan cut and solid colored sleeves to avoid this top to look like a pair of PJs. That red color appears on the text. Next time I will see if I can find that olive green or perhaps that orange.

Fräck och snygg tröja. Kan bara hålla med dig om att det är svårt att hitta snygga "tuffa" tyger till pokjar som passerat småbarnsstadiet, min egen son är sex och ska snart fylla sju - och det är inte coolt med gulliga djur längre.
