Wear it - Wednesday - My Little Knight

First, are my eyes playing tricks on me???  According to Blogger yesterday was my 200th post?? How could that be right?  Oh well, I guess I should give something away

**update** click here for my giveaway, closes Wed, October 26th

Check back tomorrow to see what I come up with, it will be so fabulous, hmm. It should be worth $200 to make the whole thing more memorable.  I am so excited!!   Jewelery? Craft supplies?? hand sewn items?? little girls tutu's?  boy's ties?  yes,  I think so.
Follow my blog so you are sure not to miss out!!

Okay on with today's post,  a couple of weeks ago, Cheri at I am Momma made her little boy a t-shirt to wear with his beloved Viking helmet.  It seems he was going through a Viking Helmet obsession.  As I read this, I laugh and look at my own three year old who was, at that very moment, sporting his favorite Knight helmet, and waving his sword at me. 
To make the pattern : I laid the shield on the copy machine to get the dragon outline, i copied it directly onto freezer paper to save the step of tracing.  After cutting it out with an x-acto knife I ironed it to the shirt, and with a stipple brush painted on the GOLD tulip metallic fabric paint.  IT IS SO SHINY AND COOL.

 Then I removed the freezer paper and let it dry a while.  Next I drew my own shield and cut it out of freezer paper and ironed it down.  I carefully painted around the dragon with SILVER tulip metallic fabric paint.
Usually the helmet is pulled down over his nose.
 I think he is adorable no matter what he is wearing, but that's always how it goes with the youngest right?  I feel like I have to use my every last little bit of crafty/sewing mommy ability while he is still little and will let me.  My older kids don't always appreciate it.  So I guess you could say he is SPOILED ROTTEN and he and I are both loving it!!

I showed this shirt off on Top-toberfest at Leafy Tree top spot.
