These are such cute patterns. Too bad I'm an empty nester w/o grandkids yet. Hmmmmm..... she doesn't look like a heffalump to me:-)

Nina, isn't Heffalump the funny pudgy creature from Danish storybook? I am not sure though. That what they named the pattern, I wanted to keep it uniform for easier searching

I know it's some kind of kid's creature but not sure. She's so adorable -- I would really love sewing for kids.

As far as I know, Heffalump was from Winnie the Pooh (a non-appearing character) and is like a child not be able to say Elephant properly.

Cute! I love your idea of adding long sleeves later - I will have to remember that.

I had to look it up :) Yep, heffalump is from Winnie the Pooh story. I need to ask my mom to mail me that kid's story book which I was thinking about initially. It'll bug me now because I can't remember it's name.

Cute shirt! And I think it will look great when you add the long sleeves in solid lavender.

Super cute shirt on an adorable DD! Not sure I understand about the neckline but I'm coming back to this review in case I try this one!

Pterion, Donít stretch the binding when applying to the front neckline and closure edges. On the contrary, ease it a little at the corners of the front snap closure.

I am just now seeing this review. Cute T-shirt. And I would never guess that you had difficulty with the binding as I can not see obvious flaws in your photo. Thank you for the heads up though
