DIY Rudolph Tee || Shwin&Shwin  Made using the Lucille Top Pattern

It’s Christmas time, which is one of my favorite times of year. My kids love it to (because what kid doesn’t) and my girls especially love all things Rudolph so I made them some Rudolph tees.

I used the Lucille Top as the base for the tee because the color blocking style made it really easy to create an animal face. You could very easily make any animal face you want, which makes the options endless.

I used this pattern:

Lucille Top Size 6 for my older daughter, size 12-18m with 2T length for my younger daughter.

Modifications: I simply left off the cuffs, my white fabric had less than 30% stretch and I didn’t want brown cuffs.

Additions: Face added to top front bodice. I used felt to create this.

So to make the face, I cut eyes that are almost tear drop shape just like the original stop motion Rudolph from the movie. Then I cut two little antlers that are basically just nubs, and of course a red nose.

Then sew them all down to the front top bodice piece. Then just follow the rest of the pattern as is.

I used some pretty thick fabrics for mine which I think helped for sewing the face pieces on since it didn’t stretch or warp while I was sewing.

My girls were more than thrilled to have matching tops. They are all ready for the Holiday parties now!
