Mariah: "Mama, I like when you make stuff"

This weekend I worked on a project for the girls for the 4th of July.

First I searched through the local thirft shops and found these 3 shirts for a total of less than $6:

And then I turned them into these:

I do realize the "USA" is crooked....but it's fused and stitched, so there's no going back now. Maybe whoever wears it can just tilt their body to the left for the day. :o)
Here's a picture of all 3, with the 4th of July bell necklaces I got for them to wear:

The pins on the shoulder of each one are hair clips that I made to match:

Since I was on a roll w/ the hair clips, I made 2 more for Janae (Gary & Courtney's niece) and Franny (Graham & Leslie's daughter) because they were both over at Courtney's house as I was making them:

These were so fun and easy to make....and I didn't use any patterns or anything, I just made it up as I went along. The best invention in the world (in my opinion --- at the current moment) is Heat-N-Bond fusible webbing. You can do anything with that stuff and then you just stitch over it. I love it. And it's so cheap! Like $2 a yard, sometimes less if it's on sale. Love love love it! I can't wait to see the girls in their new "recycled" shirt on the 4th, I'm hoping they look cuter when my sweet babes are modeling them. :O)
