I almost didn't make Monkey a birthday shirt. But he really wanted one.
So, the night before his big day, I got it done. Thanks to my better half, who is much more detail-oriented, who carved the stencil for me!
It's the korean number 9, or ahop as they say in taekwondo class. Apparently there are different ways to write it, but I went with the one they say. Don't tell me if I'm wrong.
I like how it turned out! It's metallic silver.
BTW, I went to target for his shirt, grabbed a size L, and when I got home I was surprised that they had apparently changed their boy shirt sizes! It's always been S(5-6), M (7-8), L(10-12), and XL (12-14). BUT this shirt was a L(12-14). What's with that, Target? Good thing he likes it, it will fit him for a long while!
Anyway, gathered together my collection of handmade birthday shirts, it is fun to look back!
(That was a lot of links to make! Hopefully I didn't mess any up...)
Girl's 7th she had a pretty birthday dress, her 10th she had a rad 80's outfit that I did NOT make. Her 12th I did make her a birthday skirt? Can I make her one for her 14th coming up? (14th! That seems so old!)
Hmm, I used to applique a lot, but definitely turned to stenciling more.
So many birthdays documented - love it!
