When my lovely friend Kelly over at Handmade Boy told me about this Fighter Tee tour, I didn’t even have to think about joining in. She is a runner for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and is donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern to this fabulous charity. Um, yeah… that is a YES.
Have you heard about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital? It is a place dedicated to helping children fight life threatening illnesses. No family is ever given a bill.
So this is simple. If you buy the pattern for $5, the whole $5 goes to St. Jude. If you donate using Kelly’s Runner Affiliate Link, again, St. Jude gets it all- which essentially means the kids benefit directly from your money! How great is that?!
The Fighter Tee Pattern
Let me tell you a bit about this pattern, to help you decide.
The Fighter Tee is:
Available in sizes 2-12
Instant download PDF pattern
Designed for knits fabrics
Short sleeves that hit just above the elbow
Side accent panels on body and sleeve
Great for boys and girls
Because my girl likes a shirt just slightly more fitted, I sized down one size (which is suggested in the pattern, and works like a charm). I also shortened the sleeves just a few inches. And while I absolutely love the side panel, my Falafel likes as few seams inside her clothing as possible, so I skipped it. Kelly will have a tutorial up soon to walk you through that really simple process, if your kid happens to be like mine.
I sewed this up in an hour. It really is a painless, satisfying sew. The part that took the longest was lining up and ironing on those tiny letters (which was my choice)! We found that saying all over Pinterest, and it gave both of us a chuckle.
And it is totally true.
We both take illness seriously, and are happy to support a place that supports it’s patients.
This post is dedicated to a girl we never met in person, only through the online gymnastics community, yet touched our hearts nonetheless. Her life ended just this week after a battle with cancer, at 8 years old. #teammaddison
