Birthday Boy

My Little Boy is 2!!!!

I made this shirt for him with some of the Moda Silly Safari fabric. It turned out so cute! And for you lucky bloggers out there, I have discounted this line of fabric 35% until the end of the month! Good on my website only. Toddler bedding is also planned from this fabric, so hopefully that will happen very soon and I’ll be able to show you pictures. (For those of you that read my other blog, I found my camera under my oldest son’s seat in the car.)

Putting appliqués onto anything is so fun and very easy. You can use an iron-on adhesive to hold it in place, but you’ll still want to finish the edge for washing. I used a zig-zag on this shirt because I was in a hurry but generally I love my machine’s satin stitch for this type of thing. If you are planning to finish the edge, you could also use a spray adhesive just to hold it in place while you work. I love my Sulky KK 2000 and use it often with my embroidery appliqués. I debated a more birthday themed shirt, but opted for this cute #2 with the shadow behind it so that he can wear it for the next year! The top fabric is jungle Vines and the bottom fabric is jungle dots.

We celebrated with pizza -his very favorite! And he even got juice for dinner. Yes, it was diluted…but he doesn’t know the difference and to have it at dinner time is super special anyway!

Happy Birthday, Little Man!

    so sweet! And happy — he must be feeling better.

    Yep, I like the “2” shirt – I think we will need one in 7 months. 🙂

    He is feeling better I think. All those blooming trees must have made things worse. Still not perfect…but better. Plus, he was SO happy to see Daddy 🙂 That had to make him feel some better right away!
