Fly Me To The Moon

I’m leaving on Wednesday to drive up to Pittsburgh for my Grandfather’s memorial. I have about 20 million things to do before then (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit), but instead of tackling any of them, I decided to waste my time by fiddling around with the new appliqué paper I bought yesterday.

And for once, my goofing off has paid off! I created a little appliqué that matches my newest bib perfectly. I sewed it onto a onesie, and presto: a shirt so cute that it makes me wish I was 3-6 months old! I plan on doing more shirts with appliqués, if I can figure out how draw anything other than a rocket ship.

Hopefully once I return from my trip I'll get back to posting more frequently, because for now, on top of everything else, I feel like I've lost my blogging mojo.

Ok. I love this. It's just too cute.

I'm so sorry for your loss, wishing you safe travels to Pittsburgh. Hope you find your bloggy groove when you return!

Soo cute!!

See you soon! Really looking forward to it!

Love the bib and the shirt, my neighbor is pregnant with her 3rd boy so I will be shopping for something for the newest very soon. Have a safe trip!

So it isn't a fish? Just kidding, I knew it was a rocket ship! The rocket ships on the big are quite good. Not that I'm surprised or anything...

See you soon!

(See comments on dad's blog for explanation of my new id.)

Of course I meant "bib." I'm reading a good Steven King book about a guy who had a tramatic brain injury (not as a result of zombies trying to eat them, but tramatic nonetheless) who mixes up his words. That is why I mixed up big with bib. Not because of a typo I failed to see before publishing.

Will you applique a rocket ship onto a shirt for me?

Claire said...

Kim, I would be delighted. Maybe you should wait for my other appliques though...perhaps you will see something you like better. I think a whale might be in the works!!

Those whom I will be seeing in Pittsburgh-I can't wait!!!

Rachael said...

you are too creative for me!

Kim said...

Would it be possible to get a whale and a rocket onto one shirt? Or is that me just reaching for the stars?
