Happy Birthday, Jesse!

Another one of Annaliese's buddies turned five -- Jesse's party is today. When I asked his mom for ideas, she thought he'd like a shirt that no one else in the world would have. :) I can handle that! Jesse is really into Legos, so I went on a hunt to find something lego-inspired.
Well, there's not much out there! So I enlisted my mother-in-law's help. I found a lego ttf, and she digitized "Jesse" for me as double applique letters so I could make his name look like the Lego logo. It's certainly not a perfect match, but I was pretty pleased with the results!

I did a test stitch first on red fabric. Once I knew it was going to work, then I stitched it onto a t-shirt for him.

I didn't want to waste the test stitch, so I turned it into a pocket and added it to a little denim tote bag:
