A colorful shirt for Sagey girl...

Is it weird that I get SO excited to dress my little girl up on Valentines Day?! Last year she wore this bright pink tutu and these heart tights and a felt heart headband that I made. Now that I look can anyone say overkill? So this year, I am takin' it down about ten thousand notches (at least in my book...ha) and I decided to make her a shirt from the buttons I bought from THIS boutique. 

I bought the shirt from Kohl's and took off the flowers...
 I measured the length and width, and marked right where the center of the shirt was. That was my starting point.
Then, slowly but surely I assembled the buttons and jewels with what else but fabric-tac glue! (I was going to hand sew them on but then realized that I was out of my mind...that would have taken forever!)
Here is the finished product. I am thinkin' little jean jeggings and a red hair bow...oh I just have a feeling she's going to have a hay day trying to pluck these off. **sigh 
Oh well...I'll cross my fingers that doesn't happen.

  8. I'll never get over my Momma's idea of a cute Valentine's Day outfit when I was in the second grade (too old for this!): a full pageant-style white dress with tiny red hearts, paired with white stockings (also with red hearts), and black patent leather mary janes. I looked like a collectible doll, and being a complete tomboy, I was NOT pleased with the situation!
