DIY Valentines Robot Shirt

Valentine’s Robot T-Shirt

DIY Valentines Robot Shirt

I have a small surprise for my son next week – a fun Valentine’s Robot T-Shirt. He knew I was going to make him a shirt and I asked for his preference between a dinosaur or a robot. He chose a robot. While the boys were out on Saturday morning, I quickly sketched up a design, cut it out of freezer paper using my X-acto knife (those design school skills pay off when you don’t have an electric cutter!) and painted it in using fabric paint.

DIY Valentines Robot Shirt

I kept the design simple and not too “Valentine-sy” (minus the red paint and little heart) so he can wear it beyond this month. I also bought the shirt a size larger with hopes that he’ll be able to wear it next year on Valentine’s Day too. Now to keep it a secret for another week. I can’t wait to show him his new robot t-shirt.

Do you have a special Valentine’s shirt or outfit?

Supplies: Old Navy shirt – clearance $2.54; Tulip fabric paint; freezer paper
