I heard him make the comment that he was tired of messing up his clothes when he was working in the car. Granted now, he does have work clothes, but once they are dirty and greasy they need to be washed and it's usually grease and goop and who knows what else. So, me with my ever so loving and thoughtful self. I didn't want my washing machine messed up with motor grease and goop. My goodness, I have to prewash my denim for my jean projects, afterall! I can't have a stained machine...yeah but with all that denim dye bleeding from raw denim it amazing I haven't been banned from the laundry room!
Oh, yeah. I got off the subject again. So, the pattern I found for him, because I can't really find too many patterns for the males in the house, was Lekala 6093.

I'm going to wear it our first." WHAT!? I mean, I made this for you to work in. But, do you think I believe this answer? Neverrr. Lol. Needless to say, I had to get the jumper off the hanger out the closet where it was HANGING UP! I took pictures without him in it. So, here is what I got:
Suspended from the champaign glass rack from the roof. (Nope, I don't drink. But I would like to have a pepsi on the rocks.)
For his second one...to be made after he weats this one!, will have an old cars lining fabric. I love what I do.
