“Let’s Go Fly a Kite” Africa Shirt

Our referral time is drawing near.  This means that the time for funding is also drawing near.  In celebration of that fact I am launching my latest fund-raising effort: The “let’s go fly a kite” applique shirt.  This image has been in my mind for so long now and I’ve finally translated it into something wearable!  No more doodling this on paper!  Now I’ll (hopefully) be creating these for fellow Africa lovers.  Each shirt can be customized as far as color and size.  Please see fabric samples below that can be utilized for the Africa kite.  Some of the fabrics are fun finds from my recent Uganda trip!

Shirt color choices include: White, Gray and Pink.

Available sizes: 12months, 18months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6

All shirts are $25 each.  You can purchase by check or paypal.  Shipping is $3 per item.  How do you order? Leave a comment or send me an email/facebook message.  Let me know color and size!

Fall is slowly approaching and I’m getting excited about creating some cool stuff for the kids.  I’m itching to sew for a third sweetie, but holding off until I know how big (or small!) he will be.  I have been browsing some great blogs looking for inspiration and tutorials.  I’m hoping to continue to come up with my own patterns but I’ve stumbled across several that I can’t walk away from!  My plan is to sew through the following tutorials and post my thoughts and the end result.

1. The Upcycled Hat: I plan to make a girl version for C as well

2. Ruffle Dress

3. Ringer Shirts: Long Sleeve & Short Sleeve

4. T-shirt Dress

5. Christmas Ornament Applique Shirts (Probably won’t get to this one until November)
