This shirt was part of a birthday gift for a five year old boy who loves all things related to construction.  It’s a copy of his original drawing of a truck, transferred using freezer paper and fabric paint.   I wish I had taken a photo of the original drawing, but no such luck.  This is a random thought, but I am realizing just now that I chose my college school colors.  (Go Jumbos!)  I can’t wait until I can do this project with my little one.  Right now, his drawings are a tad too, shall we say, abstract.

Inspiration for this particular project came from here.  I wrote a previous post that explains how I do freezer paper stenciling and you can find it here.

    Warm wishes, Elke

  2. Wow, what a great drawing and love that you used the artiste’s original in creating his gift. Can see why you lean towards your school’s colours. They do it for me too. 😀

  3. It does look awesome! Quick question – is freezer paper the same thing as wax paper. I can’t find freezer paper anywhere around here. And one other quick question – what is a jumbo???
