What do you get when you combine this:
A cute little shirt that your daughter doesn't need!
I had this plain white shirt that Nina received as a gift, and since her hair is still super-short, she often gets mistaken for a boy. So I had to "girlify" this plain shirt for my sweet little girl!
As you know, I have no sewing ability, but I found Heat-n-Bond in a great big sheet, which means I can cut it to any shape I want! I bought a little fabric remnant at Joann's, and then Googled "star stencil" until I found a shape that I liked. I had to fiddle around with the size of the star a bit, but it wasn't hard to do on our printer. Then I traced the star onto the fabric and the Heat-n-Bond sheet, ironed them both onto the shirt, and embellished just a bit with a few green stitches that even I can do.
I got my idea from an even sweeter shirt that Nina received for her birthday. Someone with more skills than I actually sewed an adorable letter "N" onto a shirt, and it just got my ideas going! How cute is this?
What a great gift for any little girl!
I also want to add a big thank you to Jennykate of Jennykate's Spot for the Kreativ Blogger award! Be sure to go over and say hi to her if you get a chance...such a sweetie! She asked me to share six things that I value...I am a sleepy pregnant woman, so my six things are going to be of the non-deep variety. I value hot coffee with cream in the mornings, comfort food like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, a cozy wood-burning fire, flannel sheets on my bed at night, a quiet hour or two for myself when my toddler takes a nap, and the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in the oven. Yum!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
