One of my nephews really loves to draw penguins.  I thought it would be fun to put one his many penguin drawings onto a shirt for him.  I started off with this adorable drawing.

And I ended up with this one-of-a-kind shirt.

I used my Silhouette (of course!) to create a vinyl heat transfer of the drawing and then I ironed it onto a scrap of an old white t-shirt.  If you don't have a Silhouette you could also use this freezer paper method over on the Make It and Love It blog.  Last, I simply stitched it to the tee.  If you don't have a sewing machine you could use this tutorial to put the scrap of t-shirt onto your new tee.  Or, your could iron your vinyl directly to the tee. 

I think it was a hit!

If you are interested in making your own I am thinking of posting a tutorial on how I made this one.  Let me know what you think.

Beth - I would love to do some of these for Norah, using her drawings. What a terrific idea!

It would also be cute to have her draw a picture for a friend and then we put it on a T as a birthday gift!

So, my vote is for the tutorial for sure!
