Something for my son.

I always spend my time making cloths and such for my girls but I hardly every make anything for my son, so the other day I asked him if he wanted me to make him something and he told me that he wanted a scorpion shirt (his new thing).  After trying to figure out if I wanted to paint him a shirt or make an iron on decal (whoops didn't have any iron-on paper). I came up with a great idea I found a cool scorpion picture that he approved and photoshopped it to change it a bit, I then took an old white tee shirt and cut out a piece a bit smaller than a piece of paper, I lightly sprayed glue onto a piece of card-stock, I than applied the tee-shirt to the card-stock, I smoothed it out really well, then I put it in my printer, and I printed in right onto the material, I took it to my iron and heat set it.  We will see how long that will last after all of the washes.
Well, here is how it turned out.  He should be happy :)


Ronnie loved his shirt.  I was thinking about this technique, this would be great to cover up stains on a shirt that is still in good shape.  Just a thought.


  1. love it! My son would totally dig that! You are so creative.

  2. Liz, what a great idea. You are so inventive. You could outline the scorpion with x stitches to keep in place.

    Love Ya,
