Extend-a-Shirts

So what do you do when your lovely and well-meaning family, quite reasonably assuming that your two year old toddler probably fits into two year old clothes, buys a bunch of cute tees that said toddler outgrows within two weeks of turning two in a supercalifragelistic growth spurt?

You add extensions onto the tees of course, like so:

shirt - pig + blue stripe + flower band

How cute is that pig applique? Misha drew it and then was so excited by the results, he requested to make more cute appliques. Sorry ladies, he's taken.

Ooh--good idea! Any ideas for when they outgrow the shirts in the shoulder area first?

Yeah, good call, Carrie - that's a tough one. I'm lucky enough to have a kid who seems to just grow up (seriously, waist-wise she can still wear the 12 month pants!). I bet what would be cute is to cut off the sleeves and insert puffy sleeve shoulders in a contrasting fabric. Easier said than done, obviously! Maybe I'll try that one of these days...

I do not even know what I like more - the extended T-s or your cute comments to them :)

SO cute! I love, love, love the pig. And what a clever idea! Our little guy is really long, so this idea will probably be used in our house later on! :)
