Appliqued Shirts!

My Sister Sharon has been having a month long tribute to sewing on her blog.  I think she can whip up anything, and it would turn out great.  A few days ago, she made three applique shirts; one for Kimble, and one for each of his cardiac baby friends.  We plan to have them wear them when we deliver all the blankets to the hospital, then afterwards, we will have a combined birthday party for them.  Here are the shirts!

If you notice, she made little upside-down hearts, for the spikes on the dinosaurs, in honor of their  heart defects.  Thanks Sharon!  You are amazing.

We chat often, through our webcams.  Her little guy Max is about four months younger than Kimble.  What I find most interesting about our boys, is that on any given day, they are wearing the same outfit.  It's crazy how often it happens.  On this day, they were both in their blue striped pajamas.

 If you want great sewing ideas, head on over to Sharon's blog.   She even has a pdf file about how to do appliques, and she included a cool alphabet, as well as some cute animals too!
