The fall birthday season is in full swing. For some reason so many of our loved ones have birthdays in September and October, so I have been spending most of my free time making presents.
A while ago, my friend Nan, sent me a wonderful link which showed a tally shirt (I have since lost the link). I loved the brilliant idea to add appliqué a shirt which had a tally mark to denote the child’s age. Since it would only work for kids 5 and over, I have been waiting for our group of kids to pass the 5 mark.
I. turned 5 in September, so I made her a Lazy Days Skirt using some striped corduroy fabric and trimmed pink and brown ribbon. My sewing machine was acting up a bit, so her tally shirt didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked.
I made two other tally shirts and another numbered shirt, but I accidently deleted the photos when I was transferring data from my old laptop onto my new one.
