Nia already had this white shirt in her drawer, but it had never been worn as it wasn't quite as fun as some of her other shirts. So I thought a little adornment was in order and I had a little winter fabric left over from another project.
First I applied some Steam n' Seam to the back of the fabric and then cut out some shapes. Then I stuck them to the fabric by ironing them down. Next I sewed them on.
So far as sewing projects go, this came together very quickly (an hour). If I were better at sewing I could probably do this in 20 minutes. That's how long it really should take, but every time I sew I have battles: bobbin issues, threading issues, thread that looks like a bird nest, etc. Luckily, this time I didn't sew the back of the shirt to the front and I had the forethought to practice the stitch on a spare piece of cloth to find the zig-zag I wanted! This was my first time sewing around a non-rectangular shape, too, which added a little extra time.
All in all, I'm very happy with how it turned out. 60 minutes and a brand-new-feeling shirt for my little one to kick off the winter season!
