I just finished this Pink Pirate outfit for Sienna. (click for tutorial here) I usually don’t do skull and crossbones (it upsets my mom) but I had this cute Michael Miller Goth Baby fabric laying around that I picked up at Mary Jo’s in NC this past summer. I am working on putting together a tutorial for it and should have it up in the next day or so. I made it from a tank and skort that I found at Target and just added some reverse applique and rhinestones. Reverse applique is so easy and anyone can do it. I am such an impatient crafter…..I want everything done pronto. Yours will turn out a lot better if you sew a little slower than I do

Since I am on the topic reverse applique I thought I would post some photos of another project I did a while ago. I made the below t-shirt pants out of a plain white men’s undershirt for Sienna when she was a year old and added the reverse applique using remnants of a black t-shirt. I made a matching shirt as well. It was a cute outfit. The design was from part of a wall stencil I had.
