Happy 7th Birthday and a shirt!

Saturday was my dd's 7th birthday! We had fun, stuffing ponies, decorating their t-shirts, playing games and eating cake!
The kids had lots of fun stuffing ponies!
Time sure flies....pretty soon she'll be graduating college!
So, I had a very busy Saturday, but Sunday I got a little bit of sewing in! Finally!!! This is the shirt I had cut out awhile back but needed the right color serger thread. So, I got that last week and so this project got started! Now, if you remember, I didn't have enough fabric to cut the sleeves, so I decided I could piece them together and managed to eek out the sleeves with the fabric I had.....only I cut 2 fabric pieces for the sides of the sleeves...instead of 4 (I needed 2 pieces per sleeve...). So, I made them black instead.
Here is a picture of my black and green sleeve. I topstitched with the olive green thread.
Here I added an embroidery of a gecko (I got this from embroidery library). I changed the colors to be just an olive green and black to blend into the shirt.
Next on the agenda....either the raincoat or the studio tantrum skirt..........

Love that shirt! I like the black much better than just plain green anyway. And that looks like one happy and fun birthday party! Good weekend.
