Meg at Elsie Marley is hosting a kids clothing week this week.
The challenge is to take at least one hour each day and try to make something for our kids.
Today I chose to make a shirt for my dear Elder Hug-a-Bug.
I had a couple of t-shirts that got washed with a chap stick, and they all got smudgy oil spots on them.
I cut one of them up using a tank top that fits her well
Then I cut a second one a little wider at the armholes and neck to make a fold-over facing.
Then I sewed the side and shoulder seams on my new (old) sewing machine that sews a zig-zag, and hand sewed them together at the armholes and neck.
Finally, I freehand drew a couple of patterns from this fabric and pulled a little Alabama Chanin by hand sewing around the shapes and cutting out the waste.
I am pretty happy with the results.
I think I could get hooked on this reverse applique thing. It's pretty swell.
