a few weeks ago I ordered a christmas snowman fabric from crybaby's because my son loves snowmen.  I'm not christian but my husband is - so generic christmas is ok.  But when the fabric arrived it wasnt' christmas , it was this:

Notice the menorah's, the yarmulke's on the snowmen and the star of david scarfs!! What a find!! chanukah fabric!!

So here's what I've done with it so far (something else will follow- I've got some left) - tshirt i is a plain clearance henley from Gap i got for 4$.  Applique is mostly quilting fabric with some satin for the hatband and fleece for the scarf.
Front is just a snowman (my sons favorite)

Back is a symbolic menorah.  No one is likely to "get this" but thats ok, I know.




He really likes this one!!
Thanks for looking!!

Glad you found a fabric that works and is almost as adorable as your son.  Happy Hannukah!

=O
Just your luck, I'm Jewish! XD  Grin

I actually just recieved a hanukkah-themed swap can Cheesy so I'm very happy <3

Love the menorah XD

And I find it quite funnny that you called it a yarmulke >< There're quite a few names for them Oo but I'm just so darn used to calling them kippahs.

No one in your family's Jewish, are they? What does your son think of it? He seems to be having a lot of fun! XD

that's one hilarious fabric!!! I wonder why no one imports it to Israel, most fabric store owners in my town are religious..... Grin
and your son is just adorable
(and the symbolic menorah is completely understandable.... to me anyway)

That is so hilarious that you ordered Chanukah fabric without even knowing it! And I love what you did with it. Such a cute shirt on such a cute kid!
