applique t-shirt

My daughter was absolutely devastated that her lollipop shirt had gotten too small. (Yes, devastated—three-year-old drama is so… dramatic!) So I did what any sewing mama would do: appliqué.

I used heat-n-bond and reinforced it with a zig zag stitch. My only mistake was leaving the extra heavy duty needle in the machine. I hope these holes don’t get any bigger!

refashion: Appliqué is a great way to give an old shirt new life. I can’t believe the new shirt is a size 5/6. My baby is getting so big!

    What a great idea! *I* have sometimes been devastated when my children outgrow special clothing.

    Love it. I have boys…no drama! But I too have been devastated when they outgrow something & I usually make them wear things way too long. I’m hoping to do this with the baby clothes someday…or maybe we need a refashion baby clothes day!!
