"I am THIS many"
Little SisterSome new shirts I've worked on this week. A customer contacted me about making some shirts for her girls. :) Her oldest is about to turn 3, and so I tried to think of a birthday shirt (that hadn't already been done). I love how when you ask a little one how old they are, they hold up their chubby fingers and say, "I am THIS many!" It is too precious! So I used Monster's almost 3 yr old hands as a pattern, and made the fabric hands double-sided--so when the thumb and pinky come together, you see the back fabric. :)
I tried to pattern the big sis/lil sis girls after stick drawings. I think I need to add a little bow to their heads... All those letters to sew around was a bit painful. Lots of starting and stopping, lots of curves. Definitely took more time than my normal appliques. I charged a bit more for those. I can't wait to do boy ones, though! :) Cute, cute!
I'm also thinking of doing some ice cream appliques.... I can picture them in my head--just hope the idea translates well! :)
Oh--fun news--my Green Towel Set made it to the front page of etsy on Monday! for a whole hour during lunch--whoohoo! My first time EVER on the front page! (A day I figured would never happen.) It was in an admin curated treasury of graduation gifts. :) I secretly think it was to appease me for their politically correct treatment of Memorial Day. Their, yah for Memorial Day--lets honor the foreign etsy sellers. huh? Isn't Memorial Day a day to honor our US military, past and present? But, that is an issue that's been dealt with, and laid to rest....sort of....
