Let's Hear it For the Boys!!

I Am Momma Hear Me Roar

When I saw that Cheri over at I Am Momma, Hear Me Roar was doing a boys shirt contest, I thought, "Why not".

I had gotten a couple of t-shirts on clearance from Old Navy & thought that I would spruce them up a bit.  My first idea was to make a hood & attach it too the shirt {in the pirate pattern}.  I cut out the hoodie part & sewed it together, but when I attached it too the shirt, it didn't work.  I tried it another way, and again it didn't work.  That's when I realized that my hard-sewn hoodie was not going to grace this pirate shirt.

I thought to add more flair to the shirt, I would sew on some red floss over the mouth & then puff paint the eyes & nose.

This is the finished product:

It might not come close to winning a prize, but it won over my boy!!  He loves it!
