baby T

Earlier this week I showed you a gift I made for my neighbours and their new baby boy
But I also gave them something a little more fun that I haven't shown you yet.

As you know, I absolutely love the technique of using freezer paper as a stencil for painting on fabric. So of course, I had to make baby Mitchell a fun new shirt too!

How could I resist?!
So much cuter than just a plain ol' T, no?! 

To start, I printed out the iPod logo with apple and traced it onto my freezer paper (with an extra letter). I cut out the template I had made and ironed it on to the shirt. 
Then I painted the letters.

Next to play with the infamous apple logo. 
I wanted to keep its recognizable shape but turn it into a poopy diaper as well.  

I tried a couple different ways - but being limited in my artistic abilities - I really struggled with this part.  It seemed so much easier in my head.

I ended up painting it white and then going over it with fabric markers. 
So you think I pulled it off?!

I love the stem - turned stinky fumes tee hee!


  1. That is really funny! Great work.

  2. Hee hee that's too funny - and totally adorable!

  3. I love this! The diaper/apple looks great.

  5. This is excellent! I found it through I Am Momma Hear Me Roar's link up. I think it's my favorite. What an original idea! You had me laughing out loud as I looked at what it said on the shirt!
