Captain America Shirts and Happy 4th?

A week and a half later I am finally getting around to posting pictures from our 4th of July weekend!  Are any of you finding it difficult to blog in the summer?   I feel like I am trying to keep the kiddos busy and outside this summer and can sometimes find time to sew at night.  However, finding any extra time to blog about what I might be sewing or crafting seems next to impossible.  I’ve decided not to stress about it.  This is supposed to be fun right?  I’ll post as often as I can and get back to more regular blogging when the girls start kindergarten in the fall.  Sniff Sniff.




We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend.  I’ll post more pictures tomorrow of all that we did.  Today, I just wanted to share with you these cute Captain America shirts that I made for the boys.

The idea came from Cheri at I am Momma Hear Me Roar!  Go on over and check out the full tutorial HERE.

They were really simple.  I liked that they were perfect for the holiday but could still be worn the rest of the summer.



Apparently they are “cool’ too because my 9 year old nephew asked for one!  I was so excited to finally have something that I could make for him.



You may remember from my Memorial Day post HERE that I made these madras shorts for my boys too.  Well I had planned on the girls wearing their matching skirts. 




Then we remembered that one of their dance costumes from this year would be perfect.



I think that you can only pull this look off if you are five.  They were a big hit and the girls were so happy with all of the compliments they got.




Here is the view from the back.

Happy Sewing!




P.S.  My boys thought that it was pretty awesome that candy was just being thrown at them during the parade!




I  love this picture of his little hand holding on to his lollipop for dear life!


  1. I made those shirts too! But, I forgot a few of the "rings". lol


  2. I love those shirts, very cute. The Captain America movie is getting ready to come out so maybe they'll get to wear them again.

    Great idea recycling the dance costumes too.
