So I headed to Target in hopes that they would have short sleeved shirts. It is a little early I guess, and there were none that were plain enough to use for my project here. But this cute little tee was on clearance so I picked it up. I decided on this pink floral fabric because I knew I wanted to do my pink giraffe. I set to work to get things cut out and ready to sew.
I went ahead and blew up the giraffe to cut out as my template for the fabric.
After I cut out the template I placed it on the shirt to be sure it was the size that I wanted for the tee.
Then I used an erasible fabric pen (found at any fabric store) to trace the template onto the fabric.
Now I am ready to head to the sewing machine.
Check back for the final steps, the template for you to use, and pictures of the final product.
