If you have been reading my posts, you may have noticed that The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been a common theme in my recent gift giving. Well, this time I used a different Eric Carle book. The Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? fabric made wonderful t-shirts for a little boy in my life.
These shirts were a NO SEWING MACHINE project, just like the onesies. I cut out the animals from the Brown Bear fabric (which was washed and dried first) and adhered the fabric to the gray t-shirts with Heat n' Bond. Then I hand-stitched the brown bear and green frog with DMC floss. I also added a lily pad under the frog and little paw prints from non-Eric Carle fabric that I had in my collection.
Whether you're making onesies or t-shirts, beautiful fabric and Heat n' Bond, can turn any plain article of clothing into a one-of-a-kind creation. Happy creating!
