So in the midst of all the party preparations Susannah asks me what kind of outfit I’m going to make her for her birthday. I had zero plans to make her something to wear, but I couldn’t say no to her big brown eyes. I didn’t have time for anything elaborate so I settled on a rainbow applique t-shirt. I doubt I will get a skirt made in time, but at least she’ll have something cute to wear at her party.
Surprise, surprise, I had all the scraps I needed (yay for using up scraps!) on hand already. My first thought was to cut out the individual stripes of the rainbow and attach them to Heat & Bond, but it was much easier to just cut out a general rainbow shape from each color in graduating sizes and sew on top of each layer (using Heat & Bond on each layer). It needed a little something to finish it up so I added a soft, minky cloud.
Susannah likes it, it only took me about twenty minutes, and now I can concentrate on everything else on my to-do list.
