A few months ago I did a birthday shirt for a little gal turning one. She is the daughter of one of my daugther's friends. Unfortunately, I did that shirt the day I was leaving for New York. I forgot to take a picture of it. Well, Lindsay (mom) asked if I could now do a shirt for her son who was turning three. Lindsay did most of the work. She ordered the fabric and t-shirt and had it delivered to my house.
Sean is a big Buzz Lightyear fan. Lindsay found the fabric at Joanns.com. Too bad she had to buy two yards of the fabric. I didn't want pretty much two yards of fabric to go to waste. The applique uses maybe seven inches of fabric. So I decided to make him a pillowcase.
The applique three is the Yonder font from Planet Applique. For Sean's name I used a new font called Tangerine by Trendy Stitches. Finally, the font used on the pillowcase is Pharmacy from Jolson's.
This pillowcase took forever to do. The name had over 25000 stitches in it. I knew that it would be a large job but I really wanted his name to be as large as possible. I really hope little Sean likes the pillowcase. Buzz is pretty small on the applique but hopefully he has fun falling asleep on this.
I'm a working mom who has a few too many hobbies. I've been sewing since 4th grade, making some pretty rough looking Barbie clothes by hand. I think I moved to the sewing machine around 7th or 8th grade. I've taken very few sewing classes. Because I spent a lot of years in Catholic school, I only had about 3 months of sewing in Home Ec. Most of what I've learned has come from the library, the internet and my friends.
