FREE Owyhee Western Shirt Pattern for Hank & Clementine Fabric Tour


If you didn't already know, we live out in the country.  We made the switch a little over 2 years ago.  It's been wonderful, but also a challenge.  However, my almost 2 year old has jumped in full force.  He is a regular cowboy.  He loves the chickens, the dogs, the foxes that eat the chickens, the mud and dirt.  He especially loves the tractor and playing with the hose.  So when Gemia from Phat Quarters asked me to join the Hank and Clementine Fabric Tour and I saw the beautiful fabrics, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make.

The Owyhee Western Shirt was inspired by my father in law, Joe.  He loves wearing western style shirts along with Bolo ties.  My little man ADORES his Grandpa Joe.  I actually started this pattern 4 years ago, but never finished it.  I looked at it, edited it, had baby #2 and stopped working on it.  I tried again about 6 months later, but got super busy with the youth in our church.  Then we moved, had baby #3 and I quit blogging and designing all together.  

But it was always on my mind.  And once I saw the fabrics from this line, I had to finish drafting it and surprise Grandpa Joe.

This shirt is made with Hank and Clementine Sprout collection with Kelly and Ivy.  The Ivy is the yellow fabric.  The Kelly is the plaid.  I love this pairing of fabrics.  Makes a fun and unique look.

Let me say a couple great things about this beautiful fabric.  First, the colors!  The yellow is absolutely gorgeous and I'm a sucker for any green especially teals and sea greens.  


Second, the quality.  The weight of this fabric is perfect for a nice button-up shirt.  I used  Dirtz pearl snaps, which are surprisingly heavy.  But the fabric didn't buckle under the weight.  The pearl snaps are what really make this shirt a western shirt.

And I have to say, I'm in love.  This is the perfect shirt for spring and is going in his closet until Easter.  {Mostly so it isn't ruined before April.} I am going to have to get some more of the adorable Hank and Clementine fabric line by Swirly Girl and Michael Miller Fabrics.  They've got some other great plaids.  Need to make a shirt for my oldest.

That being said, do you remember the part where I said there was a FREE pattern?
