St. Patrick's Day shirts

I decided to make some St. Patrick's day out fits for my kids. I actually made them last year, so I don't have a picture tutorial. But I will do my best to explain how I did them. Of coarse, they are super simple or I wouldn't have taken them on!

I was in Walmart and they had some long sleeve turtle necks for $1.00.
So I snatched up some different sizes and colors.

I just cut off the turtle neck part, leaving about 1/4 in.
I then took part that I just took off and cut it into about 1 in. strips.
Then I took the strips and sewed a wide basting stitch down the center.
Then pull your top thread, and it will start to ruffle.
I pinned it along the neckline as I went
After it is all in place then I sewed down the middle of the ruffle.
Pretty simple!

For the shamrock, I just took my material and cut out a shamrock. Then using some fusible interfacing, I just ironed on the shamrocks. I did a stitch around the outside of all the shamrocks as well.

For this shirt, I took some white felt and cut out a shamrock and ironed it to the green fabric using the fusible interfacing as well. Then I sewed that onto an old white T-shirt.
I made these bows the same way that I made the St. Patrick's bow Here.
Here is the back of the bow.

I actually took these pictures last year for St. Patrick's Day, so my baby is a lot smaller here. They can all still wear them this year because I did them big on purpose. I didn't want to have to make more this year!

My daughter was sick with strep throat here. I know I am mean making her dress up for pictures, but I had to get her in her shirt I made her! She actually did pretty darn good for her photo shoot!

Oh....so cute!!! I can't wait to dress them up this year!!
