However, since I hope to soon have some embroidery shirts to show off for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I'd better get this (I'm embarrassed to admit this... ) 4th of July post out of the way.
4th of July... really?! Wow.
Since we were all going to be together, I decided to make my girls and their cousin matching shirts and hair bows. I appliqued a star burst of some patriotic fabric I had hanging around and then embroidered each girls initial on top (although... the stitching should have been a bit thicker).
I made the SUPER EASY fabric flowers (as seen here, but I can't figure out where I FIRST saw them) using the SAME fabric as the appliqued shirts and a large white button and then attached them to 2 headbands (for the little ones) and a clip for Charlotte.
