butterfly shirt applique

“mine butterfy shirt” along with “mine simming googles”. Wish you could see the model in action. She’s too much! Here’s the face I get when I ask for a smile.

I love the idea of embroidering on shirts. Though next time I’m going to be patient and pick up some stabilizer at the store first. So another top embellished and I think I’m warmed up for some actual sewing. I might try a dress for Phoebe this weekend. Or! I might scrap all my plans because this came in the mail yesterday…. so excited!!!

I was trying to take a photo of her shorts too, a pair that I’d made for her earlier this Summer, but she had them on backwards and wouldn’t turn them around. I can’t wait to find out if this stubborn is because she’s 2 or because she’s Phoebe.

(sorry for the edited post. I started this morning in flickr and meant to finish up over here right away and of course it’s like 8 hours later)

    I, too, love the beautiful embroidery on shirts. But, my 9-year-old daughter (and many other children) HATE the way the stitches or stabilizer feel on the reverse side of the fabric that touches their skin. We’ve had to pass up many a beautiful piece of clothing because of this. Alas.

    It’s because she’s a girl. I was hoping my daughter would grow out of the stubbornness that accompanies a 2 yr old girl. But she recently turned 4 and it has only gotten worse! Good luck!
