H is for....




Hearts or Hannah or Hannah's Hearts. After Hannah saw Lizzie's L she declared that she needed an H on a shirt. She looked and looked and looked in my fabric stash and found some red heart fabric. It's actually leftover scraps from a Valentine's shirt that I made her and Lizzie in 2005. I'll see if I can find Hannah's shirt and photograph it. It was one of the very first things I ever made. Anyway, after she found the heart fabric we needed a shirt. Last week when we were in Target, she picked out a hot pink shirt. A light pink wouldn't do. It had to be the hot pink. :-) Hannah's very particular about her pink these days. I'm quite surprised but I think it looks pretty good together.

Lesson learned: On stretchy fabrics, a stabilizer really needs to be used when do an applique. I started without it and then ripped the stitches out. Much better now! And, next time I'm going to round the corners of my letters and see if I like that better.

It looks good! Not the crazy combination of fabrics I was expecting. I had in mind something like plaid on a totally unrelated print like the shirt and shorts combination my daughter dressed herself in when she was about Hannah's age.

HANNAH LOVES HER SHIRT. IS THERE ANOTHER COLOR BESIDES PINK?
