I was then chastised by my four year old that I was making "too many girly things" and that I needed to make him some boy stuff. So I asked him what he wanted on a t-shirt. He told me a robot, and I envisioned a cool retro looking model. He quickly added, "a Transformer robot"... uh... not that talented! So he humored me and settled for this one. I cut out the pieces and machine stitched the them onto the bright green felt. Then I took embroidery thread and handstitched the details. I cut around the robot leaving some room to machine stitch the whole thing onto a white t-shirt (which, by the way, I got on clearance at Target). The whole thing cost just under $4.00.
We're actually going to give this one to our special friend Will who will be turning three next week. Goofball was thrilled when I told him I would make him a matching one. To avoid the "too girly" trap again, they will actually be "coordinating", not matching. That's more boyish right?
