My son just turned seven ( I still can’t believe I have a 7yo) so I wanted to make a fun shirt for him to wear to school. This is a very easy project; it took me less than 20 minutes to complete.
- 1/4 Fabric (Most likely won’t use it all. Depends on the size of the number you make)
- Fabric Marker or Pencil (I actually used a crayon. It was conveniently close).
- Draw the number on the RIGHT SIDE of the Fabric. You can make a template and trace the number onto the shirt. I wasn’t worried about making it perfect (or making the project longer than necessary) so I just free handed it.
- Now, you can pin the number onto the shirt but I like to use a little shortcut:
The glue stick is one of my necessities when I’m sewing. Sometimes it does a better job of keeping the fabric in place than pins.
3. Once the number is in place, it’s time to start sewing. I used the zigzag stitch.
4.Clip off any frays and extra thread. Ta-da! You’re finished!
The Birthday Boy was excited to wear his new shirt!
His jack-o-lantern smile is the cutest!
