I had hoped to get these out to my niece and nephew before Christmas but I just didn't get around to it.
Luckily they're coming for a visit this week and it's not too late for them to wear them.
For the pink one I just zigzagged the trim onto the shirt and then covered the corners with buttons.
For the blue one I measured out the centre and backed it with some interfacing inside to stablize it. Then I used chalk to draw a triangle, placed my buttons how I wanted, and adhered them with some light stick sewing glue.
Then I painstakingly sewed down each and every button by hand. Actually, I'm making it sound like much more work than it was. I enjoyed an episode of Project Runway while doing it so it wasn't all that bad~
I'm sure after their avalanche of toys they got for Christmas they'll be thrilled to open a package with clothing in it. ha ha, kidding, I'll have to just hand them out so I don't get their hopes up I think...or maybe wrap a little something extra inside them. I can't help but spoil them just a little bit~
Cute shirts! I didn't realize there was such a thing as sewing glue- cool!
So cute!! I love that you used buttons. I am going to have to remember this one for next year.
Sweet! I'm totally making these next year! Bet the kids will just love those! Cheers,
Those are super cute! I still have presents to mail, so don't feel bad!!!
