Birthday Preparations

It's been all work and no play around here as we prepare for Nadija's second birthday in between re-organizing our house to make room for her little brother. I thought I would share some pictures of the shirt that I made for her to wear at her birthday party. The theme of her party revolves around flowers and spring. Seeing as she was born on the first day of spring, I thought this fabric was fitting. It was super easy to make and took less than an hour.

I simply chose my font, set the size to 550, used steam-a-seam to iron it onto the shirt and zig-zagged all the way around for durability. Easy peasy! I may add a flower to embelish a bit more and will be whipping up some sleeves to attach to it to give it a layered look. Afterall, the temperature is still only in th 50's so a short sleeve shirt just won't cut it.


For her party I will be adding some silk flowers to her cake and giving flower themed favors, such as printable coloring pages with flowers on them and some cute little bendy, plush flowers that I found at Target.



P.S. If you like what you see here, I'd love it if you'd share!

I was just browsing through your blog and think that this is just the cutest number 2 t-shirt. Do you remember what font you used? Thanks, Kristen

Kristen - Thanks! I used American Typewriter for the 2. Not sure what size I blew it up to though. If you're interested in making one of your own, I posted a tutorial here: http://darningdiva.blogspot.com/2010/03/birthday-shirt-tutorial.html
