In the Queue Wednesday

Anther nephew, another shirt... :)
I think this is the last of my Christmas projects. I've already shown you the Hawaiian-shirt-to-be for my younger nephew. My older nephew prefers to wear long sleeved shirts, unbuttoned, over t-shirts. He selected this pattern:

And this fabric:

Among other things, he is... (wait for it...) ...a musician! ;)

Here is a semi-recent school picture, in which he is wearing one of the Hawaiian shirts that I made for him:

I'll probably end up sewing his brother's shirt first, just because that pattern is so much quicker and easier, but, don't worry, I'll get to this one. It's in the queue... ;)

It must be so rewarding to see your nephews wearing the clothes you made for them. I love the Hawaiian shirt.

This will be an awesome shirt. Cute nephew. I think it's wonderful they wear your creations.

I love how much you sew for others! It's so admirable. I'm so selfish with my sewing. I figure that since I have so little time to sew (with my full-time job), that I only want to do things for myself. But, I wish I had the time/inclination to sew for others. :)

By the way, I meant, to give an update on my wedding dress. I feel like I've left you stranded with my other projects! My plan is to start on the wedding dress in earnest next week, when I get back from my trip to South Dakota for my friend's wedding.
