I saw this on pinterest and thought it would be cute to make one for a first birthday party this weekend. We can’t make the party but I wanted to get baby a gift since:
a) I never followed through on a shower gift I’d intended. Bought the stuff, never completed.
b) They have plans to hit Disney next month
I took to google, printed out the Mickey Ears and was ready to go. Only my printed out image and letters were disproportionate to the little t-shirt.
I wasn’t up to playing with font resizing and reprinting to get perfection. My dear friends that would have only lead to yet another incomplete project.
So, I played around with the Mickey ears in different spots on the t-shirt…
and found that I liked this position. I had some black fleece on-hand from yet another incomplete project, (but any soft black fabric would work).
I tried to machine sew it, but that turned out to be a hot mess since I wanted it to appear in the pocket and I’m a rookie with sewing curves on jersey.
Long story short, I hand sewed it in less than an hour and I love it :) I’m gonna grab a cute board book to go with and call it done.
This post link to more incompleted projects than completed ones. Ha!
I get a sweet rush giving gifts add in I enjoy making things with my hands. It was a win-win for me.
How about you, do you get a rush giving gifts? Or do prefer to receive them?
