Monday, Monday

I felt like I was gone all weekend long, so I had a ton of stuff that I needed to get done today. And, how much of that did I actually do? Not much. I was lacking in the motivation department today. At least on the housekeeping side of things. I got up itching to get out the sewing machine. I had been wanting to try to make Grayson a train t-shirt to wear for his Thomas birthday party. In October. I thought I had better get a head start since I had no idea many tries it would take to get it like I wanted it. And of course, I couldn’t make Grayson something without making Abby something too.

Here’s how they turned out… Grayson’s…

And, Abby’s, quite obviously…

This little project set me back a whopping $2.00. I found the shirts at the Dollar Tree (what are the chances?!), I cut the appliqu├ęs out of some scrap material, and I had the web fusion stuff left over from another little project. And it only took me a couple of hours! That is huge for me, because I am not a very proficient seamstress. At all.

The best thing about it, though, was this reaction…

Priceless! I may just have to go ahead and let him wear this one now and make him another one for his birthday party. Who could say no to that face?
