Emma and Kate Make Some Shirts

Emma decided she wanted to design her own shirt and in yet another fit of idiocy I agreed. Actually, this shirt wasn't too idiotic, the idiotic decision came later. So she and I drafted a pattern and made things up as we went along and came up with this:

The shirt ties at the shoulder and it turned out pretty cute. Now for the idiotic decision- since Emma had a shirt, Kate wanted a shirt. Kate hasn't worn anything that wasn't knit fabric since 2005, so believing she was going to wear a crisp quilting fabric shirt was overly optimistic. The shirt turned out totally adorable, based on a pattern from the Made by Rae post on Sew Mama Sew:

You can see from the expression on her face how thrilled she is with it. She wore it twice- once for the picture, and once to school because I talked her into it. After that, there was no convincing. It was not a tie-dyed t-shirt, and therefore not worthy of her time.
So. Know any 5 or 6 year old girls who would wear this? Cute shirt free to a good home.
