A couple of Jeff’s good friends were visiting from Texas a few weeks ago. They used to live in Boston but moved to Dallas last year and we were so sad to see them go. They have the cutest 2 year old boy that we miss having around. I made their little toddler a couple t-shirts that displayed the two states that he has lived in his short life so far. I found the perfect plain slub cotton t-shirts from J Crew’s Crewcuts on sale for $4. I love how the slub cotton paired with the felt make the shirts look vintage-y.
First, I printed out Texas and Massachusetts shapes from my computer. I googled for the state maps and then blew them up in Photoshop to the size that I wanted, then cut out to use as a stencil:
I added a felt start to where Dallas is on the map because that is where they live now. I added a heart to where Boston is because that’s where his parents met and fell in love (and where he was born):
Then slowly sew in place with a sewing machine:
I love how these turned out!!!
