I told my 3 year old that I would stitch anything he wanted onto a t-shirt. What he wanted more than anything was Bumblebee from Transformers.
I used waste canvas, and I've never had such a hard time with it. The stitching part was fine, but removing the threads after was practically impossible. I tried everything. I had to get creative to finally get all the waste threads out.
The pattern isn't mine. I got it here: http://crossmenot.blogspot.com/2009/12/transformers_16.html
Here is a closeup of Bumblebee:

I wanted to show a picture of my son wearing it, but he's too shy. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
