My new T-shirt

I can't believe I made this t-shirt today. I am really impressed with myself this time.

Of course, it had to be kelly green! Go Panthers!

I used a Jalie pattern for the first time #2805- just the basic t-shirt with longer sleeves and the round neck. I got the fabric from Hancock this weekend when the knit was 1/2 off!
I added the little mushroom applique... because I'm weird. But I like it! It came from lynnie pinnie.
It reminds me of The Smurfs... and what can I say... I'm a huge fan.

I made the entire shirt using the regular sewing machine with a stretch needle and then did the hems with a double stretch needle that my Mom got me- Thanks Mom!!!!

I hemmed the sleeves and the bottom before I sewed the side seams and that seemed to work good and lined up pretty good, too. I can't wait to make more of these!

I bought it to match this skirt (which I made two of- one for me and one for Megan)but I don't really like this shirt with the skirt. I don't know why... I just don't. This skirt is not hemmed yet... I'm waiting to use Mom's cover stitch machine

The skirt fabric is the one that came from Wal Mart at $2 a yard- so these skirts cost a whooping $3 a piece! Woo Hoo! The pattern I used is Simplicity 2609- the same one as the yellow polka dot skirt I made.

The kitties were busy today... look what they accomplished.
(Sorry... I sound just like my MOM!!!... crazy cat lady in training I guess....)

Here's a picture of William when he got home from school yesterday.... he was very happy with the towel... if you can't tell.

and here's a project for my etsy store I was doing last night while watching Dancing with The Stars... I'm so sad Melissa wasn't on there.... :(

I think I'm gonna have a pretty big order for hooded towels... so I hope you guys don't get sick of them.

The little puppy dog applique came from designs by juju and
I've had this flannel fabric for a couple of years. I've been hanging onto it hoping that I will be blessed with another little boy one day... I don't think it's gonna happen. Maybe if I use it all up.
