My son’s obsession with cars and trucks is (thankfully) waning. Sure I developed an appreciation for trucks; they are pretty diverse and amazing. And I learned that road construction can be a source of entertainment during long car rides. And ok, fire trucks are awesome. But despite all that, I am happy that my son’s interests are diversifying and he’s now interested in dinosaurs. This means we can plan trips to museums, read new books, practice tongue-twisting names AND make a dinosaur shirt!
My son wanted T. rex. So I looked through books and online for ideas of how it should look.
When I cut out the applique, he took it to play with…I had to make another in order to get the first one back!
In just a few more steps this is how our shirt turned out.
This was really fast and simple to do and we had so much fun. Click here to learn how. I would love to hear about the appliqués you make for your kids. Please leave a comment below and like us on facebook to see our shirt worn on a trip to the museum!
