It's always so much fun to combine two of my most favourite things in the whole world: music and sewing. The ever so talented Melissa (Melly Sews) and Stacey (Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy Crafts and Design) are hosting the Sew in Tune series again this year, and today, I'm honoured to be a part of it!
When my girl heard this outfit was going to be inspired by music, she begged for something to do with Frozen. We jumped on the Frozen bandwagon a little late (my children saw it for the first time just before Christmas), and now, our house is often filled with those familiar songs that can't seem to get out of your head! Anja's favourite Frozen song is Love is an Open Door which I thought would be perfect for Sew in Tune, since tomorrow's Valentine's Day. To make this song come alive through her outfit, we decided to go with a casual, comfortable, everyday look.
Does she like it?! Yes, she does!
I designed the graphic for the self-drafted sweatshirt in Illustrator. Starting with one heart, I played around with the size and colours, added the song title, and then I was ready to print.
Last year, Farrah from Mingo & Grace shared a sweatshirt she made using SuperSoft Inkjet Transfer Paper from the Dharma Trading Co. and when I saw it, I just had to get some. The stuff is amazing! I've used it on pajamas, bags, tshirts, the list goes on. You just print on the transfer paper and then iron it on...it's really just that simple.
