A good friend of mine has 2 kids.  Julian is 2 and he's her oldest. He has a speech condition known as Childhood Apraxia of Speech. There's a video here that explains this condition fairly well. Anyway, Kathy and her husband have been doing signing with Julian to help him express himself until he's more verbal. So, I thought it would be cool to make Julian a shirt that spelled out his name in ASL or American Sign Language. Cute AND educational, right? So, here it is!


The shirt, in its entirety.


A close-up.


A look at how many islands I had.  I stuck my finger in the picture so you could see how tiny some of them were.


Whatcha think?

That's really neat!  You're very thoughtful!  BTW, have you seen the ASL cookies someone made on here?  I think they show up on the home page in the "featured projects" section.  They're pretty awesome too, and might be something Julian's mother might be interested in.

Thanks guys!  I appreciate the comments!

I hadn't seen the ASL cookies, but I looked at them after your comment and they're awesome!  I told Julian's mom about that idea and she has full intentions of making some!  Thanks for telling me about them.

This shirt is so awesome! I want to make a shirt like this, but with some internet abbreviations. You're such a sweetheart for making this! It looks great.
