A Niece is born and the projects begin - Lil Sis and Big Sis shirts
These turned out really cute and can't wait to see them on the girls. I did purchase the tank tops as I'm a little rusty at the sewing machine and the machine is still working on clearning away the dust! But both me and the machine are working on getting up to par to hopefully tackle more complex projects. For now, me and some HeatnBond are really good friends. I gathered up some material, printed out some block letters from Word and got started. After tracing and cutting out the letters I simply layed out the sayings as I pleased and followed the package instructions to apply to the shirts. Easy!
Just the saying alone was a little boring, but I didn't want too much more. So along came the simple flower motif. I simply stacked some odd shaped circles of fabric on top of one another and sewed them in place in kind of a pizza slice sort of way. So, here you have it. I unfortunately didn't come up with this idea myself, however I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. So if you have seen this before please let me know where so I can give credit where credit is due.
Plenty more projects still floating around in my head to get accomplished and so little time. But one step at a time...which reminds me, I'll show off the shoes in the next post (they are sooo cute and I can't stop making them!).
