A couple shirts for Grant

Earlier this week I received a package of shirts/fabric from a friend to make applique T's for her kids. I got a couple for Grant done last night, and don't want to wait for the others to be finished to show these two off. :)

First of all, Grant is going to be 5 (yes, FIVE!) in May. I've been anxious to stitch these new Applique Birthday Candle Numbers from 8 Claws and a Paw, so Carla graciously let me do my own thing.
I really like the diamond satin stitching around the numbers -- unique and different than the other sets available elsewhere. I added his name with Whoa Nelly also from 8CP.
Carla requested a tie shirt. I adore this design and have put it on several onesies, but not a larger t-shirt yet. It turned out so cute!! Don't you just love the striped fabric Carla found?
The neck tie applique design is from GG Designs. I recently saw a picture of a tie onesie with a monogram on it and thought that was a precious idea, so we added Grant's monogram to the bottom of his tie. (I don't have a link for this monogram set -- I've had it since I received my machine and wasn't keeping track of that info yet!)

You do good work! What font did you use for Grant? It looks like a great one for kids.

Thanks Vicki!
I used Whoa Nelly from 8 Claws and a Paw. It is one of my absolute favorites, I use it a lot on boy stuff, but it's gender neutral so its good for girls, too. I just tend to go with something swirley for girls. :)
