Dr. Seuss books are a favorite in our house.   I could on and on about them but I am sure you already know how great they are ;)

When I realized the author's birthday was coming up (March 2) I knew I wanted to help celebrate the day with a special shirt for Adam to wear to school.

Wanna make one too?  There is no sewing required :)
Please read entire post before beginning
Here is what you will need:
Shirt (got ours at The Children's Place)
1/4 yard of white fabric (you will have extra)
1/8 yard or scraps of red fabric
Wonder Under (available at most craft stores)
Heat n' Bond fusible stabilizer (optional, I didn't use any on this shirt)
Black Thread (optional)
Templates (below)
Paper (I used cardstock)

When printing the templates be sure to right click on the pictures, save them to your computer, then open your saved version and print.

After you have printed your templates, cut them out and follow these instructions

FYI~I ironed the white fabric to the shirt first and then ironed the red pieces right on top.

If you decide not to zigzag stitch around the pieces, don't worry, it will still look great (and it won't take as long!).

I would love to know if you make one!! 

Feel free to ask any questions in the comments and I will reply asap.
