Today it’s a little something for the dude. This kid, he kills me. He gets older everyday, which is obvious duh, but isn’t it funny how it seems for the oldest you find joy and amusement in them grown older, getting wiser and sometimes even I just think “grow up a little!” but then with the youngest I want to cry a little when I see her getting older. Anyway I am getting off topic, back to the tee shirt made for the boy who is a ball of fun.
I made the tee using the Anytime At All Tee Pattern. You could totally buy a tee shirt and make it your own I used to do that a lot for Jude, and now since he is so long and lean (height of an 8 or 9 year old and chest of a 5 year old) so to get a shirt long enough for his torso I have to buy a boys medium but then it’s super baggy on him in the neck and shoulders and chest. So for a kid like this I either have to find slim fit styles or make them myself.
For this one I up cycled an old tee shirt of my husbands so I used the existing hem on the bodice and sleeves and it saved some serious time.
For the graphic there wasn’t a raccoon design I liked in the Silhouette shop so I drew my own in the program and added some text (rocky raccoon is the song) If you would like the graphic I used I made the file available
You can grab the graphic I used HERE (silhouette file)
It is just a studio file which I couldn’t convert to a regular file since I made it in the studio, so if you don’t have a silhouette sadly it won’t work for you.
I applied the graphic to the tee using the flocked heat transfer material. For my tips on how to get the stuff to stick check this post no one likes it when a design falls off.
