One of my best customers contacted me this weekend needing a quick shirt for her son who is turning 10, the party is very soon. I was surprised when she mentioned a shirt with a 10 on the front, I knew I liked her :)
Here is the quick shirt I made up last night in order to get it out in time for the party:
I think it will do well for an older boy, especially since he chose the Mickey Knit himself!

I saw this farm scene knit on Ebay, and instantly thought of her as I hit buy it now!
I turned the farm knit into a swingy spinny dress for her to wear. And added some blue cotton lycra flared leggings with a cow embroidered on them:
And my happy little model showing it off the next day. She kept pointing at the shirt and pants saying "Cow! Cow!" It made this sewing mama very happy.

And for all of you fabric addicts, here are closeups of some of the fabrics (I love looking at other people's stashes, so I figure maybe someone else likes it too? :))
Stripes, Camos, Christmas Knits, and a couple prints that wouldn't fit on the shelves :)
Boys Printed Knits
Girls Printed Knits, Shelf 2
I don't know why, but little bitty boxer briefs are my favorite things to sew. They don't take extremely long, and are so cute and satisfying to make.
This is one of my favorite recent creations, which went to a good home of a little boy who was getting a new Daschund for Christmas. He also got a matching raglan as a present from me :)
