I like making little appliqued shirts for birthday presents. If the party has a theme, I try to match the design. Last week Allison went to a cupcake party. So, a cupcake shirt was in order.

I need to find more girly shirts, though. All I have right now are the Hanes t’s. But this would look cute on a onesie, too. I’ve made a few other shirts, a pony and a crown, but I don’t always remember to take pictures. Here is the crown shirt.

For the templates, I usually just search Google images then put them into Word or Publisher to scale them. The crown shirt I also sewed on button jewels on the points.
