Things have been busy around here! The girls and I went up north for a few days this week to get out of the heat, it was so nice! Busy preparing for a trip to Seattle with the girls and my mom in a few days-
This one has started moving- in earnest! Ugh....
In the meantime, we've had birthday parties! Yesterday our little friend Colby turned six. We've also got a birthday party for one of our little school friends this afternoon. I wanted to share with you my go-to birthday gift (although the girls are getting a little irked that they never give toys-I try to tell them this is better!)
Supplies needed: Blank shirt, Heat N Bond light, scrap fabric, template
Fuse the Heat N Bond to the back of the fabric you wish to applique. Trace around your template number (or letter- initial shirts are way cute, too!) I used Pharmacy font- available at DaFont.
Peel backing off and position the applique onto your shirt. Iron on following Heat N Bond instructions. Stitch around the edges if desired. I use a tiny zig-zag stitch in a corresponding color.
I included a few hair accessories to match. Voila! Perfect for a birthday- or all year round!
After closing my boutique a couple of years ago, I found myself at home with some tiny crazy people. All of the time. In order to keep my sanity, I started crafting and sewing (in earnest!) It earns me "mad money", and whenever my oldest daughter hears me talking to someone about my trade she says "Mom's hustling..." Hence, the name!
