I'm really excited to share this t-shirt that my 4-year-old son, Huck, and I made for my husband, Steve. I asked Huck to draw a big picture of Boba Fett (a bounty hunter from Star Wars, for those of you who don't have Star Wars obsessed persons living in your household). Huck made a line drawing, and I used the freezer paper printing technique to put down the colors. Then I used my handy dandy fabric markers and a light box to translate his drawing over the freezer print and we ended up with this spectacular t-shirt!
Steve loves it, and it comes on the heels of a botched Boba Fett t-shirt that I tried to make for him last year that he hated ("hate" is a strong word he says, but he never wears it) to replace a very old t-shirt that he screenprinted in high school of Boba Fett that is falling apart but he has a deep sentimental attachment to. This shirt, I think, is far more stylin' that both of the previous Boba Fett t-shirts. Huck, however, thinks his lines are too wobbly. Artists!
