Interactive Boy Shirt – Racecar Play Shirt

when she saw her brother wearing this, my daughter said excitedly:  
“Can he wear that to church so we can play on him?”

Great idea, right?!?  Boys love to play – one thing my kids love is the car mat I made them – so why not make it into a shirt.  There are 2 pockets on the front for the special cars, and then a big pouch pocket on the side where several cars can be stored.  The pockets mimic Racing Flags.

To make the pockets, take a rectangle and iron all the sides in – then iron it in half:

Then fold a little crease in the bottom, as shown:

This will give it a pleat and help the pocket stick out enough to hold a car.  Just sew it on to the shirt.

The road is a piece of curvy felt, sewn on.  For the yellow stripes I hand-cut iron-on heat tranfer vinyl and ironed it on – be careful not to melt the felt.

 And yep, the road goes all the way around in a loop:

Another way I tried to incorporate the RaceCar Theme is the number down the sleeve, just like the number down the hood of a racecar.  I used my Silhouette to cut out flocked heat transfer vinyl and ironed it on.

And, voila – the shirt in action:

Just so you know, I dreamed up this idea for my 2 year old – when I went to buy a green shirt (you know, for the “grass” under the road) all they had was a size 6-8, so I figure it might fit him when he’s 5 or so, hence the number 5 – – in the meantime my 8 year old modeled the shirt for me – he’s cute, but I think it’d be cuter on a 2 year old!
