Rascal Raglan and Some Fabric

My boys are growing.
And wearing through their clothes rather quickly.
Most of their shirts are either stained, too small, or have holes in them.
I think they have one or two shirts each that are decent enough to wear out.
This is another upcycle--two $3 shirts from Walmart.
I could barely fit the raglan sleeves on the original sleeves but managed to squeeze them out.
The pattern is from Ottobre 4/2013--#9 'Rascal.'

Both are size 110 in width but I added a good bit of length to the red shirt--I'm not sure even how much, but it was a couple of inches for sure.
I would shorten the neck binding next time, and maybe do it as the instructions said...I just folded it in half, sewed it on, and topstitched--not so much a binding but a neck band.
The castle applique is a quilting cotton from Fat Quarter Shop--Madrona Road's 'Haystack' in charcoal. Perfect for castle walls!
The pattern I used for the applique is my own, newly released pattern--Castle Applique Pattern.

The boys love their new shirts.
As do I.
I also bought some more fabric! I had won a $50 gift card to and picked out these lovelies the day I got it--there was a bit of a sale on knits.
My stock of kid prints was rather depleted non-existent, and with a baby coming in June, Lord willing, I thought it'd be wise to stock up. So, there is half yard each of some Ooga Booga--a jersey and an interlock and then some from Heather Ross--both jerseys.
The next two are full yards and then 2 yards of the bottom.
It is such a pretty fabric, I'll probably make myself a dress or so out of that!
