On Wednesday of last week, after feeling miserable all day long, I decided to reward myself. I bought 2 new work shirts for Dan and 5 new Kimono shirts for Baby. It hardly seems like a reward when I didn’t buy anything for myself, but that is deceiving.
Digging through my fabric stash is always rewarding. It didn’t take me long to locate 5 different fabrics to adorn the Kimono shirts. Afterwards, I quickly assembled my supplies:
- Iron-on adhesive
- Cookie cutters
- Shot glass
In a few hours time, the shirts were decorated in fine fashion. No Plain Jane shirts for our baby.
The heart, shamrock, and bird were cut out using cookie cutters. The monster’s fabric was ‘fussy-cut’. Of course, the shot glass was used to trace out the five sections of the caterpillar’s body.
Using the iron-on adhesive, I attached the fabric shapes to the shirts. Afterwards, I used the satin stitch on my sewing machine to gussy up the shape’s outline. The eyes and the antennas were added by hand using embroidery floss.
It was so much fun!
