(BK's thoughts paraphrased)
Today is Spirit Day at my new school and we're supposed to wear the school colors, orange and blue. My big sister has a hand me down school spirit shirt from a neighbor but I didn't have anything to wear.:(
I was quite upset until Mom said she sew me a new shirt this morning before I had to leave for Kindergarten. I looked through the mountains of fabric Mom has until I found the perfect blue and orange knit. Then I let Mom work her magic while I played Polly Pockets.
I had to check on her a few times and ask her if she was done yet...you have to keep Mom on task or she'll wander off and start doing something else. In the end, she came through and I now have my very own KES shirt!
Mom spent the most time on the letters. She used some magical thing called Wonder Under to stick them on the shirt front and then she stitched around each letter to hold them in place.

I also got to wear my cool orange shoes that I talked Mom into buying at Target over the summer. My outfit is AWESOME!
In case you were wondering, my kickin' new shirt was made using an Ottobre Design pattern, 01/06 #17. It's a 104 in width and a 122 in length. Thanks, Mom!
