Tuesday Tutorial: Cute Christmas Shirt

This shirt was a lot of fun to make!

I found these cute knee high socks at Target and I had a shirt that she was sure to grow out of by the time the cold weather was done!

I was loving the fur on the socks!

First, I cut off the foot part of the socks:

Then pinned the raw end to the sleeve:

And then I used a zig-zag stitch to sew it on. Knit is NOT my fav to work with, but it was good enough to last these few Christmas weeks!

I then cut out and sewed on a Christmas tree that was from some left-over fleece I had.

There are lots of cute knee high socks out there, so have fun creating!
