Fall Leaf Shirts

The promised "Fall Shirts" are finished and worn today!

I had to pin on all the leaves. I made all the arrangements different, so they wouldn't all look the same!

Here is a close up of the leaves pinned on.
Next, came sewing the leaves all on. It took about 45 minutes to an hour to sew 1 shirt full of leaves.
Here we are all wearing our shirts. Although not much of the tatting shows!

I had to get out the fall tablecloth and snap a "portrait" of the kids in theirs!
I don't know what I'll do to hold my "backdrops" when I don't have someone in a crib--currently I drap one end over the side of the crib and let it hang down the side and just have the kids sit on it!

The shirts look wonderful! What a lovely idea for a family photo!

The shirts look great! And this kids took a very nice picture. You made quite the variety of leaves - I'd rather tat them than sew them on. The tribulations of wanting to make cloth beautiful with tatting...

Beautiful tatted leaves. A wonderful picture of your family in their special fall leaf shirts.
