A very sweet little friend of mine turned one today and I decided to make him some personalized shirts following some brilliant tutorials on MADE.

This is what I ended up with....



i only made the grey shirt and bought the other two as blank shirts, I used Dana's 90 minute shirt tute on MADE, It was fun and easy! Now that I have a new overlocker!! *Swoon*Find it here...
http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-90-minute-shirt.html



I did the "MUM" using felt ironed down using wonder-under and stitching with black thread.


The Uno shirt was also inspired by a freezer stencil Dana made. I did it onto a separate piece of  white material and sewing it onto the shirt with a zig zag stitch.Then stitched in all the black details. Very fitting since the little recipient was turning one today.
Find Dana's freezer stencil tutorial here...

I used the freezer paper stencil technique for the white one as well.



 I found this image on line for Mack trucks and the Birthday Boy's name is Mack. So it was perfect!

Sorry not too much sewing in this sewing post but hope you liked them anyway!
Thanks for looking!

Teeny Bunny!! I havn't seen you around in a while! Yes, I think that shirt may be very addictive! Although- it took me longer than 90mins I think it will get faster with practice.

Those are some great presents. I love Dana's blog. I made a 90 minute shirt too, and it too me longer than 90 minutes too. But I think it does get better with practice.
