Red, White, Blue Star Applique

I saw this fabric in my stash and HAD to try it.  Cute, non? 

But here's my dilemma.  Photographing this girl.  I had grand dreams of her smelling my neighbor's lilacs, but alas it was the best I could do just getting a head on shot of the shirt and applique.


I did a zig zag around the one and a straight stitch around the star.  I thought the star would be cute with some fraying after washing.  


Not enough sun on her face?  Maybe.  Still, like I said, it's head on.


Cuz this is what was happening the bulk of our lil photo shoot.


And while she gave me photography heartburn, the girls and their friend Jane enjoyed popsicles.  Ahhh...summer.


Super cute applique, right?!  If you are lucky, maybe we'll share the pattern.  ;)


OH and by the way, stay tuned.  I'm taking a digital photography class for the month of June.  I may let you in on all my new tricks of the trade!
