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.
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.
