Ever since I made my monster shirt I have been inspired to make more shirts for the boys. Both of my boys had a shirt in their drawer that they were not going to wear. MJ had one with a bulldozer, but the shirt was made too short and wide to fit anyone. TJ had a Thomas dress shirt but he doesn't like buttons. I decided to find a way to save these unwanted gems. I give you my reverse applique shirts.
They are quite simple to make. Here are some pictures of what I did.
1. trace around the picture you'd like and cut it out.
2. Pin your picture to the inside of the new shirt with the wrong side facing you. Now using a zig-zag or applique stitch, sew around your picture.
3. Cut on the inside of your sewing line to reveal your picture below.
4. enjoy your new shirt!!
Sorry I have no pictures of the boys in their shirts. MJ has worn his a few times. TJ won't wear any of the shirts I've made him. Not sure why but I'll be patient.
Does your little one have a shirt that doesn't fit but they still love? What did you do?
