Sesame Street Chic

This week, I saw a post where a blogger made Sesame street shirts. I sketched out a design from her shirts, and then tucked the notebook in my purse...and forgot to write down her site to give her credit and props!

So to the lady whose design I saw and who I can't give credit rock, I loved what you did, I made something similar, but it is so not as good as yours!! If you find this and let me know, I will immediately give you credit, and point people to your amazing etsy site to purchase your shirts, because they are amazing.

My daughter's upcoming bday party theme is Elmo. She loves Elmo. In fact, aside from da-da, Elmo is the only word she can clearly say. Seriously.

I made her an elmo shirt for her birthday party, but I thought these would be perfect ideas for gifts. Here's how they turned out! And here's a little secret: the shirts I used are Disney brand, and all cost $1 each at the Dollar tree. I used one sheet of felt, which was 25 cents. And scrap fabric and buttons I already had on hand. Woo hoo for thriftiness! (I savor these days because I know someday I'll be required to buy Hollister and American Eagle and she won't touch a thing I make!)
