The kids were invited to a little friend's Birthday party a few weeks ago. The birthday boy was turning two so I thought wiener dogs were in order. Teo agreed with me and decided this "mint" wiener was just right. Nice and soft made by recycling an Old Navy scarf. Arf. Arf.
Rubes wanted to know what she could give so I tried my hand at applique. From my stash I found this fun plaid and a new cotton shirt! (I buy solid color shirts from Walmart during their clearance sales for a buck and then pull them out when I remember.) I free-handed my wiener dog image larger from a sticker I had. Using fusible web, I "appliqued" the dog and word "woof" to the shirt. To secure the image some more the sewing machine, with black thread and a basic stitch, went to work.
Wild wiener running! Cracks me up every time! I'm glad I wrapped the dog around the side of the shirt... it's cute coming and going.
The birthday boy loved it as well. He wanted to wear it as soon as he saw it!
