Elliott and I recently had a couple of hours in the house. All alone. Just me and my firstborn. I haven’t done much sewing lately and really wanted to make something for him. He LOVES it when I sew things for him and also loves being my helper. We decided to do a little appliqué shirt but didn’t see any material in the stash that he really liked. Then a fun little idea popped in. Let’s make a fabric you like! I drew a five on some cream fabric and we decorated it with crayola fabric markers. Then we added some Steam-a-Seam fusible web, ironed on our appliqué and followed up by sewing around the edge of the five. It turned out very cute and very Elliott.
