Bus Applique

Here in our tiny apartment we think, breathe, and live in BUSES.  Wherever we are driving, Little Man finds the buses.  He even has 'the usual' bus parking lots scouted out, recognizes them, and insists on slowing down to check them out.  
Whatever store we find ourselves in, Little Man finds the buses!  I find myself buying ridiculously priced bus toys and books because I know I will face the wrath of Little Man if I resist!  We have every bus book, even a vintage 1965 Golden Book that includes several types of buses!  We have the Fisher Price bus.  We have wooden cutouts of buses. We have the matchbox buses.  (Keep in mind that every RV and every truck are buses in his mind, as much as his older cousin attempts to correct him!)  We just bought a windup school bus--he took that bus to bed with him!   I love that he is passionate about something, and I want to support his interests!
So the bus applique was born.

As soon as I completed the applique, I showed Little Man his shirt, and he yelled out, "Bus!"  He immediately tried to put on his new shirt.  He begs to wear his bus shirt every day (good thing the shirt is a bit big and will last a long time!).  His assessment of my work is the most important.  I love that he loves it!

If you would like to make your own bus applique, you can download my template here.  Don't laugh... I am definitely no artist! But I took this pattern seriously.  I used a ruler and everything!  So I hope it helps.

Thanks for making Oopsey Daisy part of your day!

  4. I know exactly what you mean 😉 I cannot but help being passionate about whatever my kids are passionate about.. it used to be buses, trucks, tractors etc. with my boy, he's now moved onto dinosaurs, birds, and other stuff.. and my daughter has her own different passions. I love it! Your bus T is cool – and your little man certainly seems to appreciate it 🙂
