Christmas shirts

December 21, 2009

I’m a bit pushed for time this Christmas so I wasn’t going to make shirts, but my oldest asked for one, so I scrounged up three new white T-shirts from around the house, in the right sizes, and had a go at some reverse applique.

I’m converted! It’s so much easier (for me and my machine, anyway) than regular applique.

I used this tutorial.

The Christmas tree is a size 4 for 3.5 year old Alastair, the bell is a size 2 for 17-month-old Evelyn, and the star is a size 6 for 7 year old Emma. Emma usually wears about a size 8 but this is technically a ‘boys’ t-shirt and pretty roomy.
