Butterflies and book bags…

There’s been quite a bit of sewing at our house.  First up Ive got an appliqued butterfly t-shirt for Maia to show you. I loved making this, butterflies are just such a gorgeous shape!

Butterfly t shirt appliqueI wouldn’t normally dress Maia in black, but I had a hard time finding a plain girl’s t-shirt.  Seems they only come in two colours… black and white. Just like the dino t, Mr Google provided the shape for these (how did we ever do anything before google??)

I used the old bag as a template for this one, and followed the same design with the pocket at the bottom for putting pens in.

Off to school we go…

Hope you are having a wonderful week, Jxx
