Sewing: Dinosaur Applique T-Shirt (Template)


If you've read any of my birthday party posts, you know how I love to make an outfit to go with the party. So of course something "dinosaur" is in order for Audrey's. Typically I make dresse,s but not for this one. It demands something casual, don't you think? Although a dinosaur dress sounds like a nice challenge... Anyway, I've landed on a dinosaur appliqued t-shirt to go with some shorts, which are in the works.
I used a square of IKEA striped fabric (the same that inspired the stripes on the dinosaur invitation) and used Heat n Bond to adhere the t-rex skull and stars, which I then stitched, leaving a small raw edge. Then I used Heat n Bond again to adhere the whole square to the t-shirt before stitching the edges. A bit pain-staking but pretty fun results! Audrey can't wait to wear it.

Too darn cute! Wish my boys could be smaller again just so I can make this for them! :)

I am so glad I came across your blog, my daughter is turning 4 next month and wants a dinosaur party. She wants a red t-rex and your template for the t-rex skull is perfect! I love the invites too, I would have used them if I had not made the invites yet. Thank you so much for sharing!
