Denim Jumper

I love to go to the Salvation Army Thrift Store looking for things.
What things? you may ask.
Nothing in particular, just anything that strikes my fancy.
A few weeks ago I purchased this child's denim jumper for my granddaughter
I decided that I would fancy it up a bit.
To be truthful, I went to a craft fair at Christmas and someone
was selling children's denim clothes that had been
decorated.  She was sure selling a lot of them, and of course
I thought, as I usually do, I can do that.

This is what I did.

I bought the applique at either Michael's or Joann's.  I just can't remember where, but both
stores sell them.  I thought the owl was cute, and MI daughter just
decorated Sarah's bedroom wall with a vinyl tree
with owls on it.  It is so cute.
So I thought Sarah would like the owl also.

I made a friend through a swap, who has an etsy shop called Bird nests and Paper.
I like to visit the shop because she has vintage and "garage sale" type goods
that are reasonably priced. 
I bought the red eyelet trim for her and I knew that I wanted to put
it on the bottom of the jumper.

I love the way it turned out and I think Sarah will too.
