another tumble tee ... with actual tumbling ... kinda :)

This pattern was so quick and easy, yet so cute, that I figured why not make another one :)  You can see the first version here and get your own Tumble Tee pattern here.

For this version I combined the sleeve and shirt pieces into one and ended up with only two pattern pieces, one for the front and one for the back, which which means there are only two seams - the shoulders (which extend all the way down the arms) and the sides.  Then I added a giant heart applique which is available for free in this post.  And I completed the shirt by adding cuffs to all the unfinished edges in my attempt to avoid having to hem a single thing  :)  Aside from the applique, the entire shirt was made with my serger.

I have absolutely no idea why, but I decided to add the word love to the applique.  Normally this is not at all my style, but I do love how it turned out.  And it suits Mae really well ... she is quite the cuddler :)

And apparently quite the dancer too!  She couldn't resist a few booty shakes while posing for pictures today :)

And then there's whatever this move is.  I'm not really sure what to call it, but it seems to come right after the booty shakes and before the giant HOORAY :)
