Busy, Busy, Busy Fun Day!
I finished another flannel receiving blanket. Since Spring is here, I probably should stop making these in flannel and maybe try some lightweight fabrics like seersucker. But I really enjoy making them.
Now on to the shirts. I really worked on shirts today and the next sewing session will be spent on capris pants to go with them. I love this blue and yellow together. It just looks so beachy and summery.
These last two white shirts I found at Old Navy and I thought they were so cute with the smocking across the top. I decided since there was smocking across the top to put the design off-center on one side. I always pre-wash all my shirts before I applique them and after I did, the sleeves and bottoms curled up. They stayed curled up even after I ironed them! I considered putting a rickrack or ribbon trim on the sleeves and bottom to keep them from curling up but then decided against it. The more I looked at them that way, the more I thought it was cute and probably was meant to be that way. Maybe that's the Old Navy Toddler Grunge look?!? ha!
Here is another Toddler Grunge shirt with a cute little turtle and flower. Capris for all of these are on the way! Don't forget you can click on the photo to get a closer look:) Very, very enjoyable day for me.
