IMG_8705-2 B stands for Ben, or bad boy. Its a dang good thing he’s cute cause he is naughty busy. Appliquéd shirts are easy, and super inexpensive to make. This t-shirt was at Walmart for $3.50. All you have to do is iron the fabric to the appliqué material (I buy heat-n-bond from the bolt at Joann’s) cut out the shape, and iron it into place on the t-shirt. Then zig zag or blanket stitch around the edges to make it permanent. Easy peasy.

    We have a grandson named Ben who is always into something. He’s not bad, just super curious. Love the T-shirt, I should consider it for my grandkids.

    Lovely! It looks super-adorable, as does only-sometimes-naughty Ben! I also love your photo treatment, with the “B” in color – cool. So Heat N’ Bond, is that different than fusible interfacing? And, is it stiff?
