Appliqued Birthday Shirt

Sorry, guys, it's another 'birthday' related post.  Hang in there, there is an end.  Ha!

So, last year, I bought a clearance t-shirt for my daughter in a size bigger to fit this year.  A two dollar shirt, I didn't care if she wore it only a handful of times.  This year came around and I decided it work great for her 'birthday' shirt.  All I had to do was cover up the hearts.

I pieced together some fabric scraps to create my cupcake, used a thermo web to press it on over the hearts, and for the first time ever, attempted a button-hole stitch around it.  It's not perfect.  But it worked out better than I expected.  And I'm feeling better about it to try again on something else.  Yay!

You can still see the hearts if you look closely.  So don't.  Only kidding.  I don't think anyone will notice.

Another thing checked off the ol' birthday list.

Have a good one!!
