A couple months ago, my grandma mailed me a big box with random lengths of fabric in all colors and patterns.

I decided this afternoon I needed a project.

I totally didn't know what I was doing, but with the help of Google I sewed a cute little bird onto one of Lauryn's tee-shirts.

I went to this site and copied the applique pattern I thought looked the most basic and the easiest to sew.

I didn't do a perfect job, but I did end up with one happy customer.


That's a mildly enthusiastic "Ta-da!". This was my first time to use a zig-zag stitch that wasn't just in a straight line and I had a wee bit of trouble. I'm at the low end of the learning curve at this point.

I have yards upon yards of fabric still left to use...and Wal-Mart sells plain tee-shirts for $3... so I have lots of room for improvement.

Any suggestions for what to do with cute fabric that's dark brown with small white polka dots? An owl maybe?

Okay, seriously don't know how I feel about this. You'd better NOT take up gardening, or we're through!
