Baby shirt crochet & applique – DIY

When we left hospital last month, we got 1 dozen plain white newborn shirt …. actually some of them are 3m baby size. My baby wore this shirt home and whenever I put it on her or fold it after laundry I still feel amazed how time goes so fast and can’t believe she is here with me :). Now that she’s graduated from newborn to 1m baby I want to make this plain white shirt looks more special with some flower and color.

  1. Gorgeous! One question though – do you use anything to cover the inside to hide the stitching or just leave as is?
