I created these hoodies for a brother and sister duo who are INTO the adventures of Woody and Buzz. I purchased 1 licenced shirt, split and combined it with cut yardage to make the fronts. The bottom bands, backs and sleeves were cut from up-cylced tshirts.
Their first intials are machine appliqued with rag edges.
For the 'brother' I added camel coloured stripes to the sleeve and the 'buzz' patch to the back band.

Like her sister's dress, I submitted as my first entry.
A modified Sienna pattern. I used freezer paper and paper doilies for stencilling. The queen of hearts machine embroidery is from Urban Threads. I added piping at the bodice and a few appliqued hearts. To change things up a bit, I added rows of ruffled knit at the neckline and at the ankle of the leggings.
No mystry why this tank top found it's way to a thrift store, never been worn!
Using the hoodie pattern from Lil Blue Boo, I cut up the nasty tank and added some bold colored knits, appliqued on some heart silouettes and TA DA- 'quacked' tops for my granddaughters.

I just love this banner, ---a perfect thing to make for a new baby's nursery. I selected fabrics (for me, a process involving alot of humming, staring, adjusting, choosing and re-choosing) to coordinate with the decor his mom and grandma had created. Stitched it out, came out darling. Went to join the pieces--- 2 hours later, all variations of bows, ribbon and trim did not a cute little boy banner make.
