Gifts for Little ones

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

I took the Good Life class by Amy Tangerine at Big Picture Classes over a year ago. It was without a doubt worth every penny, as I’ve used the reverse applique technique taught in the class probably a few dozen times since then.

Last week we went to a birthday celebration for two cutie pies – a three year old little guy (coolest Batman ever) and a one year old (sweetest Wonder Woman ever). I know how it is to have little ones that get inundated with gifts of toys, so I decided to make them each something and pair it with little books (and a little Batman for the little guy – I couldn’t resist). I picked up some cute little shirts for them and used a onesie from my gift stash to make these fun gifts.

Here are the ones for the one year old, Addie. I used some gray felt to add some detail to the “a”.

Here’s the shirt for the little Batman, Flynn.

I’ve started to grab plain tshirts and onesies when I see them on clearance to have for my stash for gifts. And goodness knows I have enough of a fabric stash to make just about any style!

I love to use this technique for gifts for my nephew and little items for Logan.

I’ve made sure that Logan has had a special birthday shirt to wear every year. This year was a little off since we had some kinks in our holiday plans. But by the time he had his third birthday celebration (long story) I had a shirt for him to wear. I used the same Batman fabric I used on Flynn’s shirt above!
