Last year I wanted to make a quick gift to bring along for a weekend away with my best friend and her twin daughters. I combined only the most important things, and made a shirt with appliqués of each of their cats reading a book. (Since pets are the best, and their mom and I share a love of reading. Obviously.)
Skill level: This sewing project would be good for beginning sewers.
Time commitment estimate: It took me a few hours because I drew the template myself. If you use the one I made, or one that’s already created it shouldn’t take very long.
If you want to make this project yourself, check out this link for supplies I use for just about every project. Additional sewing supplies you’ll need are listed below:
2. Felt – I love using Rainbow Classic Felt because they’re made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles (!), and I rarely need pieces bigger than the 9″ x 12″ they come as. You can buy them by the piece at your local craft store, or order a bigger pack online to have on hand for future projects.
3. Double sided fusible interfacing – I always use heat n bond brand, but I’m sure there are other brands available out there.
Crazy 8 is one of my favorite places to shop for really cute and affordable kids clothes. Below are some options for toddler tees to buy something similar to the one that I made above!
