Here’s the deal when you have two little girls: if you make a Fourth of July t-shirt for one of them, you better plan on making one for the other one. Whipping out another appliqué t-shirt is no big deal, I just didn’t want to stitch out the same design twice. Time to digitize something new for the Fourth of July!

The fabric I purchased at Citycraft in Dallas was absolutely perfect for a red, white and blue appliqué design but I wanted to keep the shape simple because the pattern itself is a bit busy.  I decided to digitize a simple firecracker design and stitch it out using my cool new fabric.

I think the shirt turned out great.  But most importantly, big sister, Adelaide, loves the shirt, and both girls are all set with Fourth of July outfits.

I loved this design so much that I saved it out in two different sizes and uploaded it to my Etsy store.  It’s on sale this week for just $1.
