embroidered octopus tee

My three-year-old son just began doing representative drawings after years of being frustrated that he couldn't draw "the way Mia (his big sister) does". He was quite proud of one particular drawing ("an octopus"), so I thought I'd memorialize it for him on a t-shirt.

I added some iron-on interfacing to the front of the shirt and used transfer paper to trace the image. Not the best embroidery job, but it gave me something to do while I watched The Amazing Race last night.

Miles was thrilled with his shirt this morning, but not really in the mood for a photo shoot.
