Justin is away on business until tomorrow night, so I had the urge to 'make something!'
Well, it wasn't dinner so this is what Addy and I had:
I had decided a while back that Addison would be an owl and I found a cute homemade picture of an owl costume...why not? :)
I also have fell in love with applique shirts like the ones from Mini Boden. I found an awesome tutorial and decided to give it a shot.
This is inspired by "THE Hedgehog Shirt" from Mini Boden
My sewing skills need some major improvement, but overall it looks like a hedgehog and if you aren't close to the shirt you shouldn't notice how uneven it is :) Or how I should have blanket-stitched it by hand or how crooked the entire straight stitch is. Oh well ;)
My Little Helper
Hedgehog Applique Shirt
I didn't take a picture of the beige fabric for the body of the hedgehog, b/c I forgot to buy it and ended up using the leftovers from the owl project :)
Trace the figures onto Heat N Bond
Bond to fabric and cut out
Place on shirt and then iron on so they are set
Stitch away, Again...I should have done this different!
Embroider Smile and Eyelashes, add button nose and button red cheek
Trim the one billion loose strings
One t-shirt and a 1/2 yard each of 2 different fabric choices
Cut the 'feathers'
Arrange the pattern
Start sewing from the bottom of the hem and up , overlapping as you go
Not the best picture, I'll try it on her tonight :)
Addison will wear a black or brown turtleneck with matching leggings as well as her crocheted hat from Etsy that has the owl eyes!
Ready for a STEAL!?
I had to go to Target to pick up the shirt for the project and I ran across some super clearance.
Head to target ASAP if you need cheap shoes, clothes or bedding.
