The vision in my head was so much better. I had this red and white stripe shirt: too big, awkward neckline, the lace-up tie was just weird and I thought I could save it.
So, I got rid of the lace-up tie, lowered the neckline a tad and took in the sides. It fits a lot better now. Then I had the loony idea to add a bird/cloud applique. I had this, this and this in my head. Not even close, huh? Maybe I’m letting my hubby’s opinion get in the way. He had one of those ‘deer in the headlights’ look on his face when I showed him.
I love how the applique turned out. Maybe it would be better placed on a pillow, bag or blanket? I don’t know, what do you think? Be honest, I have no one else to ask. Pajama shirt?
I can’t help but think of this post written by Linda at Craft apple. As we get older, things that we thought were ludicrous 10 years ago doesn’t seem so crazy any more. We get ourselves into this crafting world, and suddenly we want to applique, quilt and paint everything!
