Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Can You Be?

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!
