Annaliese ended up with three pairs of striped leggings from Old Navy. We both love them a lot. While we were home for Christmas, Kathy and I tag-teamed a shirt to match her navy and aqua striped leggings (I'll post pics as soon as I remember to take them).
Last week Annaliese decided she wanted to wear her pink and gray striped leggings. The only t-shirt I had that matched was a plain gray shirt. When I showed it to her she said, "There's nothing on it!" and proceeded to pick out a whole new outfit. So embellishing that t-shirt quickly went on my to-do list. While I was searching through designs, Annaliese said she wanted a bunny. I remembered a cute applique bunny from Embroidery Library. When I pulled up the animal set to show her, she changed her mind and picked the lamb instead. Lucky for me, a couple days later the set was a part of the stitcher's showcase and was 40% off! So for $3 I got all five designs.
I used a piece of the minkee that I bought for Naomi's blanket for the applique patch. The final product is cute, but I learned a few things. Next time I applique minkee, I will use a contrasting thread for the tackdown stitch. I used white thread on the white minkee, and it was challenging to see where to trim amidst the fluff! I had to do some careful trimming once I was done because some of it poked through the satin stitches.
All in all a cute project, Annaliese was pleased and now she can wear her leggings with a shirt that has "something on it." :)
Next up... a Valentine's Tee to match the cranberry and pink striped leggings.
