It’s hard to believe, but over the weekend my little boy turned 2. It seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago that he was born. It comes as no surprise that I’m a do-it-yourselfer. My motto is why buy it when I can make it. Now that I have the embroidery machine, I decided to make his birthday shirt. My son is obsessed with trucks, and especially loves construction trucks. His favorite book is Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site. If you have a son, this book is a must have.
I was nervous making the shirt because I failed miserably while trying to embroider a baby onesie a few weeks ago. Thankfully, this project was a success and not a disaster, mainly because toddler clothes are easier to maneuver on the machine than newborn stuff. I wanted his name on the shirt, but wasn’t happy with the first attempt, so I ended up buying a second shirt and redoing it. I like the second one better, plus it’s long sleeved and he can wear it through the winter.
Prepare for a photo bomb. Included below are pictures of the shirt, but I’m also including some of the party decor and the birthday boy himself. My very talented husband made the construction barrier. Enjoy!
