So, with that need in mind, last night I added...a shirt to his wardrobe. Sigh. Apparently, I'm truly hooked on applique. Maybe tonight I'll get to some quick pants for pre-school next week. In the meantime, here's the first piece for his 'fall collection'.
|We'll layer this shirt over a long-sleeved shirt for cooler weather wear.|
|Not too scary (=|
I used my Silhouette cutter to cut out the monster shape. I've never done that before, and next time will use a little extra pressure on the cutting blade, but I'm ecstatic that it worked. I fused my fabric (a Christmas print turned sideways!) to some Heat and Bond Lite before sticking it to the cutting mat. I left the backing paper on Heat and Bond, and then removed the paper after the cut was finished and adhered to the t-shirt as usual. Then I zig-zagged around the edges, and added a couple red button 'eyes'. My son loves it, and I think this shirt will be great for Hallowe'en without being so themed that it can't be worn at other times, too.
