sew & tell v3.17 - a small finish is still a finish!

Hey friends! We've had a busy crazy week around here and even though I have 3 mini quilts almost finished, I didn't work on any of them.  We were busy celebrating brotherlouwho's 4th birthday so I made him a birthday shirt!

Really, these are so easy to make and fun to wear. 

I just made a template for the number, cut it out (All-Star Stripe from Riley Blake), used fusible hem tape to hold it in place and straight stitched around the edges.  It's a good thing it didn't take long, because I almost forgot to do it!

He wore it two days in a row and would have worn it all week had he not gotten it so dirty!                                                                       

Your turn to share!  Show us what you've got finished!
Linky Rules.  Please follow along for a fun party!

1. Please write the post for sew & tell - or add a blurb mentioning sew & tell to a post written since the last sew & tell.  If you are linking to a post with your own tutorial, please make sure it was a finish from this week and that the completed project is shown first.
2. One linky per person. (please put multiple projects in one post.)
3. Link to your specific post.  (See here for permalink instructions - or email me.)
4. Link back here with a link or a button (HTML on my sidebar).
5. Be sure to visit and leave comments on other's posts!

Please put your (blog)name instead of your project name, it helps us get to know each other better!

What a terrific shirt idea! It's adorable!

I'm always a little envious on Sew and Tell Friday because I'm NEVER FINISHED!!! I need to mix in some short and sweet projects while I have this monster of a quilt in progress, just to encourage myself that I, too, can finish something! :-)
