Applique Shirts Coming Soon!

Well I finally got around to trying to make an applique shirt. My first try didn't come out so hot. I'm not that good with a sewing machine, still working on that, so the first shirt became practice material. After a few tries, testing out different stitch settings I got it to where I liked it and made this shirt for my little one. There are a few flaws in the stitching, but with more practice I'll perfect it and start making some of these as well. I haven't decided how much I'm going to sell these for, and it may vary with each shirt depending on what I put on it. I will let you all know when I will have these available for purchasing.
