I have been a busy little bee at my embroidery machine the last couple of weeks. I recently discovered that Wal-Mart carries solid colored Garanimals t-shirts and keep finding myself putting one or two in my cart each time I’m there.
I use a Brother SE-400 sewing/embroidery machine. My hoop is only 4″x4″, which is perfect for making shirts for my little ones.
Since I currently have my machine set up for embroidery, I thought I would go ahead and make 4th of July shirts for the kids using this design from Planet Applique. I know, it’s a little early. I figure they can start wearing them Memorial Day weekend, which is only a month and a half from now. I love that the kiddos are young enough that I can stick them in matching shirts without fuss. I still need to make Gene’s, but I have some time.
I think she likes it. She’s wearing a 12m shirt. Hopefully she slims up as she becomes more mobile, otherwise this won’t fit come summer!
I also made this shirt for a friend’s little boy. The alligator appliqué is from Planet Applique. It’s such a fun little design, especially paired with the polka dot fabric. Polka dots just make everything better, don’t they?
I have a few more shirts finished. I’d love to make Moxie several for her summer wardrobe. The girl is seriously lacking in 12-18m clothes.
This shirt is part of my 2014 Sewing and Craft Goals!
