for me the one hard thing about having little ones, is actually having time to spend on the hobbies i used to have plenty of time for. although, working from home also takes my free time away, i usually choose to spend what free time i do have playing with my boys. i like to get out of the house and take them places and forget about the work i have at home.
recently, i have been wanting to sew. something i used to do frequently. however, since i only have little boys, options for sewing for them are much less than if i had little girls. but lately i have started making them these applique shirts. i made them some for the 4th of July here, and just finished making my youngest one with his first initial. the picture on this post is one i made for my little niece. they are much more cute in person!
these shirts are super simple and i will be posting a tutorial on how to make them yourself this week. you don't even have to have a sewing machine. so stay tuned for that.
in the meantime, here is a chance for one of my blog readers to have me make an applique shirt for their little kiddie pie.
