Happy New Year!!

I'm just not in the mood for pouncing today so I thought I would share a little of my own home made goodness. Each year I make the boys a Christmas T-shirt ~ again not sure how the tradition started. Usually they entail a completely inappropriate image for Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere ~ think Santa, snow, reindeer ~ you get the idea. But not this year (or should I say last year) I made these!! The trees are from fabric by Japanese fabric company called Kokka that I appliqued onto T-shirts with a nice little blanket stitch. I found the fabric at Kelani Fabric Obsession a store that has such a lovely choice of fabrics. I especially love the selection from Australian designers. The shirts are a hit with the boys and they've already worn them twice! Imagine, a Christmas shirt that has life after Christmas. Oh, and Happy New Year, I know it's belated but I'm really not a fan of the first day of the year.
