To Live and to Love

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Deuteronomy 30:19-20.

It isn’t Gymboree, but it will do.

The shirt was made from a very old and faded t-shirt that was headed to Goodwill. The reverse appliqué was fun to do and instantly gratifying as the image emerged with the little snips. Never again though will I make the shirt from scratch. It was much too tedious to get the cap sleeves right only for the neck to stretch and feel bulky. I used what I had on hand but in retrospect I wish I had started with a purchased tee. The shirt in like a bright pink and the turkey out of a deeper brown would really make the appliqué pop. It is disappointing how dull it looks.

But nevertheless. I was determined for little S to look festive tomorrow!
