don't look too closely

2 hot pink t-shirts: $6
brown and pink polka-dot fabric: $2.50
red and orange felt: $0.50
buttons and thread: free
hand-making Thanksgiving tees (that are nothing like the ones I wanted to make) for the girls in under four hours (without tears or expletives) that I'm not too embarrassed to let them wear in public*: priceless

*Please note that the public I'm referring to is limited to my parents, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. The girls will most certainly not be wearing these shirts in the presence of professional seamstresses, perfectionists, anyone in a well-lit room, or the rest of the general public. The handprints are ironed on, the stitching is all over the place, and no two legs are the same length. The shirts will have to be removed before eating, as I'm quite sure they won't survive a trip through the washer!
