I have been meaning to complete a long overdue birthday present for my friend, Alix’s daughter, Paxton. Pax turned four a few weeks ago. The date kind of snuck up on me but I didn’t want it to slip by without some type of acknowledgement. But what to make?
Pax’s older sister, Helen, turned eight back in January. For her birthday I made her an appliqué t-shirt with a heart on it which apparently Paxton has coveted. So I thought a little heart t-shirt would be the perfect gift, but I didn’t want to do the same thing twice.
Paxton is quite a little character. Alix has regaled me with stories about Paxton sneaking into all sorts of inappropriate places. A heart with a superhero flair seemed to suit her personality.
The appliqué design that I created for Paxton turned out very well. I used some fabric that I purchased at the Fabric Nosherie for the heart shape, and a simple white undershirt fabric for the star. The green in the trim of the t-shirt is reflected in the color of the appliqué fabric.
I hope that Paxton likes her T-shirt, but I also hope that it does not give her an inflated sense of her super powers.
The star in heart appliqué design is now available in the Machine Embroidery Geek Etsy store in two sizes for $1 – this week only.
