Initial tee's

It all started with my friend Jessi asking me to make a shirt out of some leftover fabric scraps to match a skirt she'd made for her daughter.

Of course I did an initial because that's all I ever do lately, but jazzed it up a little with a circle of the coordinating fabric and a little bow!

Then I wanted to make a baby gift for a friend from work who just had twins, so I went with the same idea-

I added a cutie little hat to keep those baby heads warm-

A pretty little rose out of matching fabrics-

Then I started thinking they were turning out so cute - Claire needed one too-

with matching socks-

then I added some ruffles on the backside, because everything is better with ruffles-

Then I decided maybe a skirt would finish off the outfit-

I might have to make her one of those hats too, they were so sweet!
Yeah, I get carried away sometimes - at least I didn't make one for myself :)
Hopefully she'll be feeling better this weekend and I can get some cutie pictures of her wearing it to post!


  1. I found your blog through tater tots and jell-o. You are amazing! The caps are super cute. My husband and I have a blanket project we are doing; making and donating blankets to hospitals for babies who are still born or who don't live very long after birth. I would love to make some sweet hats for angel babies as well. I am so glad I found your blog. Our blog is! If you have any ideas for us especially for blankets I would LOVE them. Thanks!

  2. So, so cute! Good for you for making your daughter some too! I always find myself making cute gifts and never getting around to making them for my own daughter. LOVE the ruffle butt!

  3. I love the circle frames around the initials, it really looks nice. I often put my daughter's initials on things and I really like the frame. Thanks so much for sharing the idea.
