My cousins daughter is the closest thing I have to a niece. There’s enough difference in our ages; that’s how I think of her. She too has inherited the family magpie gene.
T-shirts from Targét, to which I added a little more sparkle. Her favorite colors are lime green and electric blue (thank goodness she’s out of the pink phase!) so I did my best to follow that with the green shirt.
The shirts are not decorated with crystals, but something called rhinestuds. They are faceted metal, and also hot fix. Not quite as sparkly as true crystals, but much less expensive, and more prone to staying affixed through multiple washes. Sewing for teenagers is, at best, a temporary thing as their tastes change so frequently. Decorating something already assembled seemed a much better, and easier way to go.
I am sorely tempted to keep the grey shirt for myself, since it is very much my colors: silver and purple. So, we shall see what the holidays bring. Maybe she’ll get it, and maybe, she won’t!
