A small project and a trip to the park

If there's one person in the family who's benefiting from my new love for sewing, it's my toddler, Ryan.  He just loves when I appliqué shirts for him.  I've been promising him for a week that I would make him a new dinosaur shirt, but alas, my printer has been on the fritz.  I normally print out b&w line art for appliquéing, but this time, thanks to my temperamental printer, I actually wound up freehanding my first appliqué design.




I think the shirt came out pretty awesome, and the recipient was super proud to wear it to the park this morning.  I think this was the first morning in a long while where we were perfectly content being outside, beyond the early morning hours. I think fall is finally starting to show up, even here in hot and humid Florida.

I'm really glad Ryan enjoys the shirts I make for him. He looks so cute in them, and they're so fun to make.
