First I want to show you a trio of shirts I did for my friend Whitney's girls and niece. She requested something summery and I immediately had in mind this great little flip-flop applique.
For three little girls who spend a lot of time at the beach, I think these are perfect.
And Whitney was kind enough to grab one of these cute little tops for Lilah so that I could make her a summery appliqued top, too! Although the flip flops turned out amazing, I had just gotten a new applique the night before and couldn't resist the opportunity to try it out, and I have to say I am pretty pleased with the results!
This very traditional looking monogram is so cute in applique - I imagine it would be perfect on a baby's bag or done smaller on a burp cloth. Or how about wrapping a bride's shower gift in a bag that has her new married monogram already appliqued on it? Great idea for a honeymoon shower, for sure!
Whitney's daughters scored a couple more t's, but these were just straight on monogram jobs. This one I had to create myself, because I didn't have a pattern and Whitney wanted it to match a shirt her niece has. Every time I see it, I can't help but think of Dotted Swiss. I know it doesn't look a thing like Dotted Swiss, but I immediately click to a sense memory of feeling those little knobby bunches of fabric on a dress I wore as a kid. To this day, I can't pass by a piece of Dotted Swiss fabric without running my fingers across it like a Braille text.
This little piece of precious is a onesie for baby sis, to replace one I gifted her when she was born and has already grown out of. The previous onesie featured a very traditional, script monogram, so for this one I kind of wanted to do something a little more fun and modern. This font is called "Sparkly," and I just love it. It's a little "wacky 60's sitcom" to me, and since I feel like my life is a bit of a wacky sitcom most days, expect to see me find an excuse for it on other things soon.
This is far from all the T's I've been working on lately. As a matter of fact, I have some VERY special T-shirts to which I want to devote an entire post - I just have to find all my pictures first!
