On Friday I yet again found myself with a looming (read: 24 hours), two-year old's birthday.
Little Banjo was on the receiving end of one of my favourite softies ever this time last year, and seen as how he has one crafty mumma I figured I had better come up with something good ... but fast.
Enter the humble plain white t-shirt and some scraps
a bit of shadow tracing before school pick-up
a bit of ironing and cutting post afternoon tea
a bit of stitching in between various parts of Friday night's dinner making
and finally a bit of zig zagging around the edges while the kids were in the bath and voila, a personalised t-shirt!
I think it helps the overall effect if you have a name with street cred like 'Banjo' don't you?
Oh and with the few extra scraps and a little help from the aerodynamic tongue we had ourselves a birthday card for the little dude too.
Happy Birthday Banjo!
