Jule, it is fabric. It matches the loud shorts I made my sons http://img23.photobucket.com/albums/v68/bethan/July4th%20Sewing/
HC, it does have something on the chest...
Again it matches my sons' shirts. It is to reflect our dual heritage/nationality. Its a bit small but it went fuzzy when I blew it up.
SarahFroggy, I was actually ticked off at my husband because he was fussing over taking the photo!
