My friend Liz and I decided to use some leftover fleece to make a few toddler hats using Simplicity 5317 pattern. We made the large size (21")....and they came out so cute. I did piece together the lower bands but it doesn't distract from how cute they are!....They are so easy and not lined. I haven't decided how to decorate mine yet, but Liz sewed a shiny yellow round button on top of a flat pink button on the one she made.....see below...it was so fun having a friend to sew with!...Thanks Liz.

The next pictures are of two t-shirts I embellished for E and C who live abroad. I am excited to send them. For once I thought up the applique design. I usually have to look at a design and try to copy it so this was exciting. My husband, Jerry helped me with the placement of the 3 hearts the turtle is holding. The picture doesn't show the hearts very well but I think you can see the ribbon bow on the one with the purple zebra hearts. E and C love balloons so the hearts represent balloons on these t-shirts.
The purple sleeves were saved from one of my t-shirts that I previously remade into a tshirt for E but I liked the buttons and saved the sleeves. Yea....could make the t-shirt long sleeve. Went to a local thrift store and found a small t-shirt for 50 cents ...purchased it and used the blue sleeves to also make C's t-shirt have long sleeves.
