Itsy Bitsy Spider Shirt

Ok I just have to take a second for some self praise...It turned out SOOO cute!! Ok I'm done!

I am so excited about this shirt though! I had mentioned in my Spring Break Extravaganza post where I made Asher's {Spit Happens & Name Tees} that I had a bunch of ideas whirling around in my head and this is the first one to materialize! I used a bleach pen for the web, wool felt for the spider and embroidery floss for the edges. (I'm a big fan of messy floss - love it)


And for those wondering; I did not sew on the spider, that would be my right hand gal Denise.
I still have yet to even touch {"The Machine"}.


I can't wait to see my little cutie in it; however, with his insane rate of growth I purchased an 18m shirt so it might be a few months...weeks...ok ok.. days before he fits it! But I will be sure to post pics when he does!


I also have some thanks to give to Cheri @ {I Am Momma Hear Me Roar} not only for teaching me via blog tuorial how to make these adorable tees but also for featuring my tees on her site!
Wahoo! I Roared!

I was spoiled for this shirt, but I do have to say the stitching turned out cute. Now if only Brady would relinquish the garbage truck shirt long enough to let me embroider it...

Jax @ Aly&Ash said...

He's wearing it again today I guess! That's awesome! "Gar-Gar!"

SO cute! The messy floss made me think of writing, and I hate sewing, so instead I used a paint pen and lettered the rhyme around the hem. Stretched the shirt taut on a board and it worked great.
