Lil' Boy's Christmas Shirt: Mistletoe League

Pucker up Ladies! It's Kiss-mas time.  

Clark decided that he really needed a Christmas shirt this year, so I whipped up this little number.  I LOVE it (hopefully you do to).

The material for the shirt came from two t-shirts that I picked up at Wal-mart on clearance a few months back. I only paid one dollar a piece-that's cheaper than our local thrift stores charge for t-shirts.

I used the existing hems for both the sleeves and the bottom hem, doing so saves so much time.

I then created a simple little pattern for the text of the shirt.  I used a freezer paper stencil, a sponge stencil brush, and fabric paint to create the wording.

I also added a little number detail for the shirt as well.  Each number has a layer of red felt topped with some matching knit fabric.  I then stitched them to the shirt with a triple stretch stitch and some contrasting thread.

He doesn't really love the shirt.  He think that it needs some Christmas lights on it. I'll probably give in and add one to the back of the shirt, hopefully that will be enough for him.

Christmas is less than a week away.  I still have 3 Christmas project to finish up, and I'm hoping to make a new dress or skirt for myself before Sunday as well.  We'll see what I can accomplish.

Wow, looks very cool! So, you "combined" two tee-shirts? Did you follow a pattern or is that just something you know how to do? I might have to go for it and make something like this for Peanut and Hubby!
