My older daughter and her fiance - yes, there's a wedding coming someday - are attending a birthday party for a little boy turning two. For some reason, they requested I make a shirt, with a giraffe, that said "tee-hee-hee". No clue why, but that's what they wanted.
So, since I'm a long-time fabric hoarder, I was able to put together this t-shirt:
Anyways, I found an appropriate giraffe clip art picture, and did some reasonably good applique work. It's hardly perfect - imperfect stitching, and slightly wonky neckline, but it's made by a human, so it is what it is! As Julia's pre-school teacher says, "don't have a fit, you get what you get".
I spent some time with my kid after making the shirt and sending it off to the party, and while she napped, I made yet another drawstring bag from LTTS. This is for sure my go-to kid party gift as long as I have time. This one is for one of my daughter's classmates who is moving out of town, so I wanted to be sure to make time for him. Once I make the trip to Target, this will contain some type of Lego guys.....This is Kokka fabric from my shop, with some leftover black linen from my stash. Every time I make one of these bags, I think "this one is my favorite..." - well, this one is a close second to the one I made a couple of weeks ago from Anne Kelle Girlfriend Princess fabric....
This may be all my sewing for the weekend, as we have a birthday party and basketball practice Sunday, but I feel good about my projects for the weekend!
