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

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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

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

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:-)
