My daughter, Megan, thought that Mommy had a pretty cool new hobby when I first started doing all of this applique and wanted to make a design too. I thought this was a great idea, so I asked her to draw me something that she would like me to help her put on a shirt. She drew out the letters L-O-V-E just as you see them and picked out the fabric for each letter.
I just love it! Don’t you?
Well, I had an idea to make my girls and Grace and Sophie some coordinating Pj’s…so I made their Pj’s bottoms to have my girls match the bottoms of their friends. I thought of what I could put on their tops to coordinate them even further but then remembered the idea above so instead I had them each draw a picture of a flower for me to cut out and put on their shirt. Again they picked the fabric that they wanted their flower to be and all I did was sew it on. If you look closely you can see their picture they each drew.
Below is a picture of Grace with her rose design. Didn’t she do a great job with her drawing? She told me later that she copied the swirl from the fabric into her stem for her rose. Work of art, I say!
Here’s Megan with her Daisy design.
And these 2 are inseparable, literally! The are the cutest little friends that I ever did see. We only see each other 4-6 times a year but every time it is like they just saw each other yesterday. Reminds me of Wendy and I…apple doesn’t fall far, huh?
