It should be pretty clear by now that I have a "super-hero-lovin'-bad-guy-fighting" little boy in my house. So we have been having fun expanding his wardrobe lately. He loves helping me pick out the fabric, or choosing a design. (the green linen pants? His idea, also a peek at a new pattern due out soon)
He decided on captain america for this tee (although there will likely be more) I like the modern look of a few details without it being a total character shirt. (even though he did get some cool vintage looking super hero shirts for Christmas) Making one is really easy.
Start with a tee. I ironed some fusible interfacing to the inside of the tee. I did this to help stabilize the tee so it wouldn't stretch and warp as I put the pieces on. You could skip this but if you have fusible interfacing on hand (which is handy to keep on hand, and wow that was a lot of "hand" talk) go ahead and use it. Then you will want to cut out a helmet shape (I used denim) an "A", a star, and two wing like shapes for the helmet.
Then place the helmet down on the tee and stitch around the edge.
Then sew the A down and I quilted the A for an added effect.
Finish up by sewing the wings and star on, which I also quilted on.
Then it's done, so your little guy can throw it on. As I am sure he eagerly will.
Jude loves to wear his with the super hero pants I made him. (thanks mom for the fabric)He LOVES his super hero pants, but they don't leave the house...
I guess that's why he will stick with his green linen. At least I love linen.
