- A boy is Truth with dirt on it's face,
- Beauty with a cut on its finger,
- Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair,
- and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket
Tony's Gamma is a dear friend who moved to Texas, but thanks to texts and phones, we get to stay in touch. She is closer to 2 of her 5 grandchildren this way, and enjoys sewing for them while she can. Tony loves trains and comes from a football family, so this design was the perfect one for him.
This design is from Applique Market; Kathy added his name above the football. She used cutaway stabilizer behind the stitching, and Solvy on top. I know Kathy uses cutaway whenever she can, and many times she uses two layers. She comes out with a shirt with NO puckers every time. Even after they are washed.
I hope it won't be too awfully long before I get to see this
little freckled face again. Don't you just want to pinch those little cheeks?
