4th of July Shirt

2nd Attempt (it's a keeper!)

I made a 4th of July shirt last year from the Makes and Takes tutorial.  UNFORTUNATELY, I did not test the red t-shirt fabric first, and when I wash it, the red dye transferred all over the shirt!

This year I wanted to make the "girl" shirt again, but had SO much trouble with the gathering and sewing the ruffles onto the knit shirt, that I finally gave up and made the "boy" design.

The button stars are perfect for the shirt.

Even though it's the "boy" design, Hannah loves it!
