Hi! This is my first clothing post, more of a modification on an existing t shirt but here goes. My boyfriend's dad had to go in for heart surgery last week. In the weeks leading up to it he told us that he was going to have a zipper installed. So. Needless to say, we got to work.



installation of the zipper







and now he can show off his repaired ticker! He actually ticks too. Until his heart repaires the surgical cuts, we'll be able to hear it beat from a couple feet away.



All done in an afternoon with sharpies and fabric markers, a t shirt, a zipper and needle and thread. Comments welcome! thanks for looking.

That's so cool! It was lovely of you to do it for him too...

I imagine you could make some cool toddler clothes like this too, with fun prints behind the zippers. I'll have to acquire a toddler to make clothes for!

I love the idea and imagery, and if I was the recipient, I would be thrilled and honored.  Too cool.

I'm totally picturing doing a blue swatch with the Superman emblem on it behind the zipper... like busting out of your street clothes kind of thing.  That would be very cute on a kids shirt.
