I've wanted to do this for quite some time. When Aisha said today that she doesn't have enough simple t-shirt to wear with the skirts I made for her I know I can't delay it any longer. I made her a basic t-shirt from an old adult tee and embellished with fabric appliqué. This is a simple, no pattern project and of course many mamas have figured this out. What fun this project is!
I took some pictures in the process but figured this is perhaps too basic a project for a tutorial. I used the tracing method coz it's fast and cheap, perfect for a t-shirt meant for daily wear. I might put it up if I get enough request though J
The appliqué is my first ever fabric appliqué using fusible web. Love how it turned out! I just cut up a fun floral motif from Sandi Henderson's fabric scrap from previous project, fused it to the t-shirt and used zig zag stitch around the edges. I think what matters most is Aisha loves the comfy t-shirt.
I'm relishing my current state of sewing skill. I could feel it's improving with each craft project. I've never attended any formal sewing class or anything. I just have this huge appetite for knowledge on this hobby of mine. I devour the books and learn from resources on the net as well as sewing patterns. I wish all this will rub off on my children. I want them to revisit this space often too. Hope they will grow up with beautiful souls and a much more meaningful life.....
