Wild camper Omni Tempore

Once I dust off a pattern I usually end up making two or three items at once. Today I'm sharing another Omni Tempore shirt by Sofilantjes (affiliate links) and it's the first time I used a jersey knit instead of sweater fabric for this pattern.

My son loves it, the jersey knit is just as soft and it's even easier to get on and off. That's a big plus, especially on gym class days! Oh and take a look at that hood, I really like the oversized hood look the Omni has.

The tipi is added with fabric paint and it immidiately brought a smile to his face. It isn't very often he gets clothes with text or images on it, but this tipi has been lingering in my mind for a while now. I see a lot of tees and sweaters with some sort of camping application out there and always love them, probably because we're all camping fanatics over here.

I must admit it's easy for me to stick to clothes I like because the boys really don't care, they put on whatever is in front of them and like everything I make for them.

  1. Super leuk, de stoffen die ik gebruik zijn al zo wild dat er geen applicaties meer op passen ;)

  2. Ik heb hetzelfde als Inspiration. Ik gebruik heel veel stoffen met afbeeldingen en dergelijke. Wanneer is dan een effen stof gebruik schrijf ik er niets meer op. Maar het idee is erg leuk.

  4. Waw, knap, ik ben fan! Voor de tienerzoon vraag ik nu steeds vooraf wat hij graag wil, effen of met iets extra, maar dit zou hij zeker ook nog goed vinden :-)

  7. Tof, met die tipi! Ik heb vaak de intentie om iets toe te voegen maar het komt er niet vaak genoeg van. De zoon vindt voorlopig alles nog okee :-)

  8. Mooi deze! Mijn jongens hebben best een uitgesproken smaak (wel kleurrijk, maar niet te druk). Dit zou weleens heel goed in hun plaatje kunnen passen!

  9. Hello! (I found a link to your post in an FB group) This is adorable, I love it!!
    I looked at the pattern; would you agree that it is easy for beginners, as the description suggests? I have sewn on and off for 5 yrs (but off for the last 2�� and never a clothing pattern - mostly quilting and patchwork). Thanks!!

    1. Hi Rebekah, thanks! the pattern really is suitable for beginners. It's almost impossible to go wrong even if you haven't been sewing with knits a lot. You can always start with a version in sweater jersey that's even easier then a normal jersey.
