Woo-hoo those are awesome!!! They are so, so cute and look like something you'd pay way too much for at the Gap or something. You know you're going to have their friends' Mother's calling you with orders... :)

Thanks for sharing!

I LOVE this idea! I went right out and picked up materials to make one for a friend's daughter for her birthday: $4 shirt from Target, $2 socks from Target, $1.50 fabric from Jo-Ann's, then a $6.50 jean skirt from a consignment store (I'm going to add a ruffle that coordinates with the applique). A darling birthday gift for a friend: $13. I'll post to my blog when I'm done :)
