Jack loves candy corn. I kept that in mind when I started looking for a Halloween shirt for him to wear to school for his party. The two year olds don’t wear their costumes. So, I wanted him to wear a festive shirt.
I couldn’t find a candy corn shirt at a price I would pay for it! So, I purchased a long sleeve orange shirt (for $3.50) with intentions of painting a jack-o-lantern face on it. But, I got home and realized that a felt piece of candy corn would be fun!
I had never made a shirt using felt before so this was a new project for me! But, I love how it turned out.
I used a solid white piece of felt and added the three colors on top. I hot glued them in place so it would hold together a little better. I sewed it onto the t-shirt by hand because my machine is acting up. But, it turned out better. I like how it looks more homemade when it is hand stitched.
I cut letters out of felt to use as a guide for embroidering his name on it.
I wanted his name to look kind of hand written. It turned out looking hand written by a two year old.
I still like it although next time I will try to keep it neat!
– Special thanks to Anna for all the felt you left with me!!!
I will post a picture of Dean’s when I finish it!
