This year we selected Itch2Stitch's Cupcake Box design for her birthday shirt, primarily because it came with a 2.5" version just perfect for an American Girl doll shirt. Color palette was picked to match these shorts.
We contemplated putting a 9 in the cupcake wrapper, but Annaliese decided to go with something more subtle, so we added nine sprinkles to the cupcake. I used Quirky from I2S to add their names.
I made Annaliese and Anna's shirts last week, so proud of myself for getting them done early! Over the weekend we went to Build-A-Bear and she made a Rainbow Dash. Once we were home she asked if she had any shirts that matched BAB shirts. Sadly, she's outgrown all the things I made a few years ago when she got her first BAB. So I whipped up a little surprise for her this morning, a "shirt" for Rainbow Dash. :)
I had to be creative, dressing a pony with wings is very different than a traditional teddy bear! I have some 0-3 month side snap shirts in my stash, and thought that would be easy since it wraps around. I cut slits for the wings and tail, and appliqued the cake patch right where her cutie mark is. It's not perfect, but it got the job done. :)
I have two more of those shirts so you might see some more in the future!
Math teacher turn SAHM, I received my first embroidery machine in 2007, transferring my love of fabric from quilting to machine applique. Knowing I can never repay the God-given talents I inherited from my mom nor the generosity of my mother-in-law, I choose to pay it forward. In my free time when I'm not stitching, you can find me blogging away, candidly sharing all the details of my recent projects to assist those new to the craft, inspire fellow embroiderers, and promote the fabulous digitizers that make it all possible.
