Today was a banner day for a person like me who has a “pathological need for approval.” (This was my sister’s diagnosis but I can’t disagree with her assessment.) I started out my morning with a stop by my sister’s house to drop off the lab coat she loaned me for my daughter’s mad scientist Halloween costume and lo-and-behold, my nephew, Wilson, was wearing the ski shirt I made for him. I remember it turning out pretty well, but DANG – it looked great! And, most importantly, the kid was wearing it.
Then I got a text on my phone with a picture and message from the parents of my daughter’s friend, Maya. They just wanted to show me how cute Maya looked in the personalized (with initial) birthday crown appliqué t-shirt I made for her. Adorable. I didn’t have the shirt done on Sunday (the day of the party). But I did have it ready on Tuesday and sent it to school, wrapped, with my daughter so that Maya could wear it today (her actual birthday).
There is not much to report on the process of making this shirt, or digitizing the design as I created this birthday crown months ago. However, I hadn’t used the file in a while – and never on a girl as old as Maya (10). I do think that it looks completely age-appropriate, and again – most importantly, Maya seems to love it.
Like the design or have suggestions for alternative birthday designs? I would love to hear your thoughts. Check out the birthday crown design on my Etsy store.
