The # "2"

Today I attempted to make Petey's birthday "2" shirt...this will probably not be the one she wears for her birthday because it didnt turn out great but it was good practice!

First, I cut out a piece of paper in the shape of a 2 and stenciled around it with a pencil.
See the pencil drawing?
Then, I cut out around the pencil so the shirt had a cutout of the 2.

The last thing I did was take a square of Strawberry Shortcake (baby fabric is the only one we could find but Petey still loves it) fabric, put it inside the shirt, and sew around the outside around the "2" cut out. And wa-la! We should've been done but during the process, a certain little girly was playing under the sewing table and when I stopped sewing to turn a corner, she pushed the foot pedal and made the sewing machine freak out on me and start sewing everywhere like crazy...

So where the main "boo boo" was (because it isnt perfect and there were many other boo boo's), we cut out one of the Strawberry Shortcake figures and sewed around her to cover up the mess.

And though it looks slightly weird, Petey loves it and that's what matters.
Next shirts we will be attempting are an Elmo shirt and a Dora shirt. Petey is so excited for both!
