{birthday shirt}

I was asked to make this cute little shirt for my nephew who will be turning two this week
This is such a cute and fun shirt for any kid to wear at any age and guess what??


Even if you are a beginner sewer you can do this...I promise
Want to make one? Here is what you'll need:

scrap fabric for number
paper or card stock
fusible webbing (Ashley from Make It and Love It has beautifully explained what it is HERE)
sewing machine

Here's what to do:

1. Print out from your computer or free hand draw the number that you want to use. Make sure it's the right size to fit your shirt. I like to use card stock because it's a little thicker.

2. Cut out the number.

3. Trace the number BACKWARDS (very important...if you don't do this then your number
will end up being backwards on your shirt) onto the paper part of the fusible
webbing that you are using. I prefer to use either Wonder Under or Lite Heat n Bond.

4. Iron the number onto the WRONG side of the fabric.

5. Cut out number again but this time it will have the fabric attached

6. Peel off the back of the fusible webbing (the paper),
position it on your shirt and iron it down

7. Stitch down. I stitched this as close to edge as possible...probably about 1/8 inch stitch.
I just eyeballed it

8. Now you are all done!!!

Now that wasn't that hard was it?
