The monkey and the elephant: tiny t-shirts for tiny people!

Apan och elefanten: små t-shirtar för små personer!
The monkey and the elephant: tiny t-shirts for tiny people!

I made these together with my boyfriend for his godson Jack as a present on Jacks name giving party the 5th of June. Jack is soon 7 months, so he is what I call “a tiny person”.

Since my boyfriend isn’t as familiar with sewing as I am, I made him sort of my assistant, haha. I bossed! Joking apart, joking apart (as we say in Sweden). We cut out the pattern pieces together, then he graded and pressed the seams and he even stitched the side seams. Here’s the fruit of our cooperation! Tadaa! Tiny t-shirts for tiny people! With monkeys and elephants! You dig!?

Material Notes

I used jersey with cute animal prints.




Garment Type
Beach, Mod

    I’d like one for myself please! Sounds like you two had fun making these together.

    We’ve got that fabric in DK too :-) Often wanted to buy the monkey-fabric, but wasn’t sure what I was gonna make out of it. Thanks a lot for the inspiration! I’m gonna make something for my sisters son. He’s 7 months old too! :-D

      It’s from a fabric store here in Malmö called “Stoff och Stil”. They have a website so I did a little bit of sniffing around and found out that they have a Norwegian version as well: www.stoffogstil.no

      Lykke til!

      Thanks! :) I used a pattern from my local fabric store. Just a basic t-shirt pattern for children. I’m sure you can find that here and there :)
