My five year old daughter came up to me with her doodle pad with this drawing on it:
I thought it would make a great design for a shirt, so I took the picture and opened it up in MS Paint. I then had her write "Big Truck" on a piece of paper and scanned it in. She wrote "Big Tr" and then ran out of space..so "uck" is on the other side of the page....she's not exactly writing yet - just really good at copying letters.
I took that image, put it under the drawing, moved the letters around and resized a bit. Cleaned up the truck, filled in the lines and got rid of some background.
Printed on freezer paper, cut out the letters and around the lines of the truck, ironed it on to a blank shirt I had that fit my son and painted with black fabric paint.
I could have just printed an iron-on with the image, but this will last through way more washes.
Elias LOVES his new shirt!!

This could become my new favourite thing!!!
