My boys are 5 1/2 and 3 1/2. They love Star Wars. I think they're ready for me to introduce them to Star Wars' nerdy, cerebral cousin named Star Trek. I think they'll dig it, too. And I'll dig it even more if they start wearing these around:



I cut a black t-shirt and a red t-shirt, then patched this shirt together. (Note: If you do this, MAKE SURE the t-shirts are as close in size as possible. I bought these (same size, same brand) shirts on the same visit to one store -- they were probably even manufactured within minutes of each other. And yet there was significant variation after a pre-project wash and dry. Could make a woman cah-razy. Sheesh.)

I tried to embroider on the communicator pin, but it turns out I don't embroider as well as I thought I did. So that's made out of yellow fabric, silver fabric, some interfacing, and Heat N Bond:



Thanks for looking!

Those are fantastic.  My mom made me a similar uniform shirt made out of ready to wear long sleeve t-shirts when I was LaForge for Halloween in Grade 4.

I hope your boys love Star Trek.

Aw man that is so cute. I don't have any kids so I guess I'm going to have to make a grown up version.
