Alasdair and Ruben – new shirts for the boys

I promised to sew something for Alasdair, I’ve neglected the poor guy a bit. So I made something special for him. A suede shirt- fake suede of course, a leather shirt would have led to heated discussions about animal rights with his niece Neala – but it looks as soft as it feels. I love the stuff, but it’s a bitch to sew. I tried to use the sewing machine, but it’s hopeless, so this was a bit of hand stitching.

And Ruben needed a jacket, or another shirt. He got a shirt that also works as a jacket in brown corduroy. I would love to dress him in black, but I am afraid dark clothes will stain his ink. I already managed to chip something off his chest piece with the necklace.
