Because I’m Happy

A little early for “Success Saturday”, but definitely in lieu of “Failure Friday”, I finished up my hand-stitched “Happy” shirt and must admit it makes me happy.   While running errands all over town today I’ve also gotten lots of smiles from passersby so I think it is making them happy too. 😉  The shirt is completely hand sewn using a running stitch around the reverse appliquéd letters, felled seams and a herringbone stitch around the neckline and arm holes.  It was easy peasy and I’m excited to try some more hand stitched every day shirts.  My friend Bianca is the genius behind it all.  You can buy the shirt kit from her Etsy store here:
