I'm sure you other moms can relate to this story. We got an email on Monday afternoon, that we should send our kids to school with Dr. Seuss shirts on Wednesday, as it's Dr. Seuss's birthday - and NEA's Read Across America Day. Well, since I don't have a shirt laying around, and no time to go shopping for one, I thought I would make one!
I picked the Lorax, because it's my son's favorite Dr. Seuss book (I would like to think he's a budding environmentalist, but I'm pretty sure he just thinks it's silly). I Googled an image of the Lorax, added in some text, and printed its mirror image out on some heat-transfer paper. After a couple of minutes with a hot iron, I had a cute shirt for the boy!
I only wish my son weren't sick and could wear it! Luckily, I made two iron-ons, and gave the other to Stephanie's son. Hopefully he'll have a great special Dr. Seuss Day in HIS Lorax shirt.
I'm off to make Green Eggs and Ham for my kids - to make up for missing the fun at school. :)
Don't forget to keep sending in your paper creations to firstname.lastname@example.org or your stiched or yarn creations to email@example.com for consideration for Feature You Fridays! We've already gotten some fabulous emails and can't wait for Friday to start sharing!!
