My latest project


I saw a cute appliqued onesie a few weeks ago at a boutique and it gave me the idea to make these shirts. I have two adorable nieces who are turning two this summer so I made one for each. I started with plain pink tees from Target and added the cupcake and ribbon sleeves. I will be honest-- I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. I was afraid it might turn into a train wreck since, once again, I had no idea what I was doing. Heck, I was just proud of myself for threading the dang bobbin on my own. Thanks to this and this, I came up with a gameplan and it seemed to work! Now I'm trying to think of some good boyish shirts to make.
