Remember my baby gift tutorial that I posted earlier this spring?
Well, I made another baby girl gift using the same steps!
For this project, I used an upcycled tee shirt for fabric...
I packaged it in a little origami box I made form cardstock,
topped with one of my handmade flowers.
When I want to make an origami box,
I just look up a origami box tutorial on youtube!
You could make this same project for a boy,
using a sailboat, car, bike, whale, owl... on the shirt!
I used my walking foot to sew on the heart. I still haven't located
my fabric stabilizer; it sure would have been nice to have some!
Also, rather than a ruffle, I just added a stack of raw
fabric strips as the hem. It made a neat layered look!
To make the little headband, I simply sewed the ends of a long rectangle
piece of knit together, then sewed a tube of knit around the seam!
Here is what my first outfit of this sort looked like:
