Strawberry Lovin'

I had posted a note to my Facebook account that said I would make something for the first 5 people who responded. One of the five who responded has three girls. I wanted to make them something that matched. After pondering what I could make that would look good on three different girls, I came up with appliqueing strawberry hearts on white t- shirts.

The fabric is some that I had left over from girly- girl's Easter dress. Out of that and a desire to expand my sewing skills, I came up with these shirts.

And then in a fit of inspiration (and realizing that I still had some fabric left over), I made a paper- bag style skirt for one of the shirts. I stitched elastic around the waist and then stitched in to the t- shirt.

And why is it that she can never have a photo shoot all to herself? Her younger brother always insists on getting in on the shoots. Thanks to older brother from trying to pull him out of the way.
