Guess who likes carrying around secret treasure more than a pirate? My kiddo. She’s a huge fan of “collecting” things, and squirreling them away for later. Acorns, pebbles, twigs, coins, you name it, she’s usually got some in her pockets. (Thankfully, we’re past the stage where any of those items go in her mouth, whew.)
Recently, she noticed that a dress I was wearing had pockets on the front. She immediately asked for her own “special shirt pockets”. I’m no sewing whiz, but I thought I could hack some pockets onto one of her plain t-shirts using iron-on hem tape. The result? A pretty adorable t-shirt that pleases her to no end with a capacity for small treasures.
