For Big Brother, the younger two wanted to make a Star Wars shirt. Since the lettering was pretty intricate, I made the stencil, and they painted it.
For Big Sis, the boys looked at a couple different store websites for inspiration. They found a t-shirt at Crazy 8 they liked. We copied the image (sorry the resolution wasn't great),
and I created an applique and freezer paper stencil.
Here is my younger boy painting.
For Baby, I showed the kids some ideas, and they fell in love with Traci's owl applique. I cut out all the pieces, and the older two took turns helping me to sew the appliques on. At this point, my youngest boy was done with helping.
Here are the results...forgive the wrinkles. I've been keeping them tucked away in a bag in my closet.
Each shirt turned out great. Best part, the children each had a lot of input on both design and putting everything together. They are wrapping them up today, and are excited to see each others' reactions.
