A pocket full of posies...

quite literally!
A simple little spring surprise I created for Princess #2...

beginning with a t-shirt I found with a tiny pocket...
(from Walmart for $4.50!- they have other colors too!)

then using one of my all-time favorite creative supplies:
fabric scraps!
do you save all your scraps too?
 sometimes just seeing them all together makes me smile!- so bright & cheerful!

I simply cut my designs from chosen scraps,
layered circles and strips for the stems,
and stitched them to the shirt!
(I did use heat-n-bond first for durability, I also chose to stitch
a bit away from the edges to allow a little fraying- which I love!)

but my favorite part of this little project was how excited Princess #2 was
with her new "spring surprise"!-
and then finding she had prepared her little outfit for the day...

complete with her precious accessories!
just melts my heart!! 

all from a simple "pocket full of posies"!

Happy weekend! &
Many Blessings!
Jill

  10. I know exactly what you mean about fabric scraps! Why is it so hard to throw them away? I love this project! It turned out so cute and I love the fact that your daughter laid out her outfit. Jewelery and all! Precious!
