America's Independence Day is almost here, so to get in the spirit of things, I decided to make some patriotic outfits for each of my kids. Each of these sews is from an American designer too!
I was in Australia back in March and had promised to make my nephew a PJ Masks shirt, since that's his current obsession.

Back in October, we took our kids to Disney World for a few days. I decided I would take advantage of the cheap price on character fabric at JoAnn to make my son a couple of Sketchbook shirts.
