I cut out the shape of Africa in the cute fabric I found and then ironed it on according the the directions on the heat and bond. Then I added a patch in the shape of a heart over Uganda. Finally I stitched around the whole thing.
I am in love with how it turned out!
I think he likes it!
I make this shirt look good!
I am really pleased with how this turned out and I love that he has an Africa shirt now!
Once I had the shirt making bug I couldn't stop! I decided to make a little leprechaun shirt for him for St. Patrick's day. I had read on another blog that you can cut a shape out of freezer paper and then iron the outline onto a onsie. Then you would have a stencil to use fabric paint and paint an image on the shirt. Sadly my freezer paper would not stick. I made sure it was shiny side down and everything. Maybe it was old, I don't know, but it didn't work for me. So, I held it down REALLY carefully and painted the shamrock on the shirt careful not to get any paint under the freezer paper.
Sorry, I forgot to take a picture before I got the onsie wet to put in the dye bath.
Waiting, waiting, waiting.....
My little leprechaun :-)
I had also made a smaller shamrock stencil for his booty. That one didn't stick either.
Now all we need is some corned beef, cabbage, and a cold glass of green beer for Daddy :)
Inspecting his shirt. I think he likes it :)
The End! :)
P.S. I have had so much fun making these I have 3 more shirts for him in the works!
