State Pride

Good morning! Here are the pictures of the top I made.

I got this book from the library and fell completely in love with it! I want to make the skirt, the one on the front, sometime.

I asked mom to buy me a navy t-shirt from Hobby Lobby size extra large. When I showed her the finished shirt (I basically took the original shirt apart, cut it smaller, fitted it to myself and sewed it together again) she said, "is that the shirt I bought you?!"

The front applique.

The sleeve.

For the back I used the reverse applique technique described in the book. Cole kindly donated the yellow and white t-shirts I used for the appliques.

Doing the reverse applique was really fun!
