Logan

My big boy is heading off to preschool on Wednesday, and his school provided a tote bag to all the kids. They had an orientation last week, and while the parents talked, the kids were supposed to be decorating their bags. Logan is never one to follow the crowd, so his bag was undecorated.
I thought his at least needed his name on it. I used fabrics from his last two Easter shirts. You can see the Thomas shirt here and the gingham here. The satin stitching for the applique edges was done on my vintage Singer Touch and Sew, which really has a far superior stitch for this sort of application. She makes a nice dense zig zag while still being very maneuverable around the curves.

Next up - pants! They are done, I just have to get pictures. I'm not thrilled with them, but Mitch likes them pretty well, and that is what matters.
