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.

WOW, impressive! Never thought about reverse applique. But talk about impatient crafter…I’m queen of that! This looks like WAY too much work for someone who wants instant gratification and hates following directions like me 🙂

This is fabulous!! How, exactly, did you do it?? I get the gist of it, but will you be posting more specifics? It's so great…
