Mur-Man has a little bit of Irish in him and of course I require my kids to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. My husband’s go-to look has always been jeans, a dress shirt, and a blazer. You won’t believe it but my husband does everything in this attire (he mows the lawn, does house work, and has even been caught sleeping in a blazer!)
I of course want Mur-Man to dress well and wanted to add a little style to his wardrobe. Why not add a tie to a plain t-shirt or onesie (better yet, add a green tie for the holiday). This craft is easy, a quick fix, and affordable (because many items are already in your craft stash).
Onesie or plain t-shirt
Using the tie pattern, trace and cut your wonder-under.
Iron the wonder-under onto the wrong side of your fabric (rough side down).
|This is the tie pattern that I created. The numbers represent inches|
|To conserve your craft supplies--cut the wonder-under to fit the pattern.|
Trim the fabric along the edges of the wonder-under leaving no access.
Remove the top layer off the wonder-under (you should feel a remaining film on the fabric) and iron the tie onto the shirt or onesie.
|Once cut out--you can iron it onto the shirt.|
|I like to iron a crease into the center of the shirt to help determine placement of the tie.|
Sew around the edge of the tie (you can sew leaving a seam…this will make a more frayed look or zigzag the seam).
|My Mur-Man won't get pinched!|
My Mur-Man is looking more and more like his Dad and I love that this look allows him to be a PROUD IRISHMAN! Consider making it yourself. Simple, affordable, and I think ADORABLE!
CRAFT TIP: Make lots of different tie shirts. The possibilities are endless. (Be on the lookout for future posts on other decorative kid shirt ideas).
