So I was inspired by the cool stuff on craftster and a shirt from Delias, so my sister and I decided to add animals to some our own shirts that needs sprucing up.

I like dinosaurs. I just found a good profile pic of a t-rex on google and printed it off. Then I cut out the dino and used it as a stencil to cut out some red felt I had around. I handstitched it on, I don't really know how to sew things by hand so I just made it up.


Just the position on shirt. Sorry for the lack of light.


My sister did most of this one. I copied the whales directly from the Delias shirt and just fiddled with them until the were the right size to make stencils. She sewed them on herself. I think she's planning on putting a heart above the whales out of some pink fabric that looks a lot like the blue fabric.





I think they turned out pretty nice for our first time adding details. What do you guys think?

those are both really cute! the first is my favourite though, i think the red looks really good against the blue stripes. the stitching is pretty good too- gives them a real "handmade" feel and adds character. so yeah, good job.
