Ruth’s t-shirt inexplicably got a hole in it, but I don’t like to throw things away if they could be made usable. I chose a vintage floral to patch.

I traced circles from a tomato paste can, a medicine bottle, and a sippy cup onto wonder under, ironed them to the floral print and cut out, then ironed them to the shirt and satin-stitched around them.

Lessons learned: 1.Use a stabilizer. 2.Use a narrower zigzag stitch. 3.Little girls don’t care about imperfect sewing. Finished is better than perfect.
