Today I'm sharing this raglan sleeve robot shirt that I made for Clark. He loves this shirt and lovingly refers to it as his "bot". I'm sure that it is a lot of fun to dress up little girls in ruffles and lace, but there is something about robots and dinosaurs that warms my heart. I love my little man, and am so pleased that he loves this top.
I had found a free downloadable image of a robot. I was pretty excited and I showed it to my husband. I was sure that he'd be pleased that I was going to make a robot related shirt for his boy, but to my surprise, he seemed less than enthused. As it turns out he was not impressed with the image itself. He said to me "You can do way better than that", so I set to work and sketched out this quick little robot. I think that he's pretty cute.
I also made this little BEEP word block. I placed it on the back of the top, and love the way it turned out. I transferred the image to the shirt using a freezer paper stencil. The gray paint is a mix of a white and Night Sky Pearl soft body textile paint from Tulip. The gray paint had the slightest bit of glitter in the mix, but I think that a bit of sparkle is fitting for a robot.
I added some embroidery floss stitching around the heart, head, and the word block. I think that it adds a bit of dimension to the top and ties in the colors of the shirt itself.
here. It is available for personal use only. I hope that you enjoy it. I have two little nephews on the way and am planning on making some little robot onesies to welcome them to the world. You could use this image for an applique or a stencil, whatever you need it for.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to read. I enjoy your comments and feedback so much.
I'm partying here today. Don't forget to link up your top related projects to the Top-toberfest show and tell.
