Memorial Day/ 4th of July Embroidered Shirts

I am really happy with how the shirts came out for Hadley and Max for memorial day/4th of July.  It was my first time appliqueing and of course I picked elaborate designs.  They were just too cute not to.  To give you an idea, each different color fabric has to be cut and you have to take your hoop out of the machine.  I really got the hang of it when I did Max's shirt. It still takes me a couple hours per shirt, but I am getting the hang of it now so I hope to speed that up.  
I still need to work a little on placement, but it's pretty good considering I did almost everything myself (I broke a needle and David replaced it for me).
He looked so cute in the shirt at the pool. I took it off once it got really wet, because it wasn't a wet t-shirt contest.
Silly boy faces.
For Miss Hadley I made these chevron flag onesies with different fabric choices. It took a while to cut around all those zigzags, but it is adorable!  Michelle found the perfect matching accessories (skirt and bow) from The Childrens Place.
I mean, you can't get cuter than this.  I couldn't ask for a more precious model!
Such a sweet girl. Love her and her outfit.
I had to include an outtake. Poor gal isn't steady sitting on her own yet and she tumbled backwards a few times. Hadley was not hurt during the shoot, she was a little trooper!  Let me know if you'd like a shirt for the 4th of July. $18 per shirt, $21 shipped.
