fish tee




Another brought tee that I appliqued on.
This time Grace's request was for a fish, and here is the end result.
I was going to start it yesterday while the littlest two slept, but Grace wanted me to sew at night so that she could come and find it on the table in the morning and get a surprise.
And her enthusiasm this morning when she awoke to find her new tee was just adorable!
I remember the same excitement from when I was younger, coming out for breakfast to find a finished garment mum had been sewing on the table. I was always in awe at what she could create while I slept. How lovely it is to be able to recreate those memories for my children!

Lovely fish. I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing your creations. I found you because you make up the Ottobre patterns, which I also subscribe to.
