Here is something super simple to do with your kiddos. We used some baby t-shirts (but any size will work!). Inspiration: Pottery Barn Kids.
First, I washed them.
Then I drew some shapes on sheets of felt (25 cents at the Hobby Lobby).
Sophie cut the shapes out and then I just stitched them onto the shirt.
There was no interfacing or glue or ironing, so it is really soft. Just pin them to the shirt and stitch like you are sewing a button. Then take the pins out. :-) Voila!!!! Custom t-shirt for a couple bucks!
I let her pick what shapes to do, so we have an elephant, a bird, a giraffe (which looks more like a dinosaur. I'm not so good at the drawing!) and a square with an "E" for Eliza. Felt is surprisingly easy to cut with her little safety scissors. I did even out some of the jaggedy edges, though.
They were so easy, I'm going to let Maddie do some next time I go to Hobby Lobby.
They would make cute baby gifts!
We've washed them several times and the dye in the felt doesn't bleed onto the shirt nor does it shrink or pucker.
