picture of a dump truck
saying of choice
heat n bond lite
black dmc floss
first, cut scraps of fabric using old clothing. (we have tons of too-small clothes around here with two growing kids!)
following package instructions, iron on the heat n bond to your scraps.
cut up dump truck picture and pin to fabric to use as a template.
(don't mind my chicken scratch, i was trying to figure out what colors i was going to use)
cut your fabric--don't worry about perfection--its for a boy!(after using the body of the truck, then i cut the window and tires out to use them for templates)
cut out hearts from the red fabric
put the pieces on the tshirt for placement.
iron the pieces in place
using embroidery hoop and dmc floss, back stitch around the main pieces.
with a pencil--and possibly an extra set of hands ;o) hold saying and tshirt up to a window(or in my case-the t.v.)
stitch the letters.
i'll probably put a red long sleeved shirt under this--it is still winter after all!
by all means, if you don't want to hand stitch--use your sewing machine.(or your don't have to stitch it at all--hmmm, black fabric paint would work, oh well, next time!! lol) i'm still a bit intimidated by sewing small pieces--so i opted not to use my machine.
