sew fun!

i decided to create a fun outfit for my favorite three year old!  i put fusible webbing on the back of my fabric and then drew a flower on it.  then i cut it out and applied it to a tank top i picked up at old navy for about $2.  i used embroidery thread to stitch around the flower.  that's the blanket stitch around the petals...i am still working on my hand embroidery!  it is definitely a skill.  

i used mccall's m5835 pattern to make the shorts.  it is an "easy" pattern, but there was still seam ripping involved for me!  i want to sew more clothing items so i get more familiar with patterns.   

here it is- i hope she likes it!

i added a small piece of ribbon to mark the back of the shorts.  any body have any patterns they love to use?
