6 Scoop T-Shirt

I knew I wanted to make Layla something cute to wear for her ice cream birthday party. I was inspired by other bloggers showing the age t-shirt they have made, so I started brainstorming. I knew I didnt want just the number 6 or anything. Somehow, the idea popped into my head to do an ice cream cone. With six scoops. Six scoops for six years!





So one night after her dance class, we headed to Joann's to look for some fabric. Lucky for us, their fat quarters were on sale for $.99 each. We browsed up and down the aisle and came up with this. (I also used this fabric to make the bunting & dress for the cake topper).





I didn't take any pictures of the process, but I think you can figure it out. I looked online for a pattern to use, and found this coloring page. I shrunk it to size on the copy machine. I pinned it to my fabric, cut them out and applied some Fray Check to the edges. Then I attached them with Heat N'Bond and used the sewing machine to stitch around each one.




I think it turned out really cute!



Had I not waited until the last possible minute to make this stuff, I could have actually shared it before the party! Anyway, have a great Mothers Day!

That is so cute!!! I'll bet she loved it. I probably would have just done the number six. But then, I'm not very creative.

lovely, i embellish my girls ( 6 & 4 ) teeshirts and they would love this. I've done the normal one scoop and the cupcake, hearts, numbers, letters, apple ( that went down well) and boats ( for nephews) but will give this one a go. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
