Happy Birthday Addy!

Again, I'm playing catch-up. In June sweet little Addyson turned 4! She had a Tinkerbell themed birthday party...and I got to make her birthday shirt. She really wanted everyone to know that she was going to be 4...so that was the most important element of the shirt. Because it was a Tinkerbell party, the colors were green and purple. So, here is what I came up with for her shirt.
I found a little Tinkerbell online, and I pulled it into my software and digitized the outline of it, to put above the 4. It's just a little something to help tie the theme of the party in to the shirt. I also picked a really curly font for her name, just for fun. Here's a closer look.
I also made Addy another little tee as part of her present. I found this shirt, which is one of my most favorite colors in the world...it's pretty much Terra Cotta. I decided to go with a very simple design, just an appliqued 'a'.
In hindsight I would have used a different fabric for the applique, but the colors matched really well. Usually I really like brown with this terra cotta color...but since Addy's birthday is in the summer, I wanted to do more summer-y colors. So, I went with a white outline and this brighter fabric.
Just a little something I made back in June. :)
