He's Like Buttah!

Today's post is a simple freezer paper stenciled t-shirt for a smooth little man.  I made my nephew the Quiksilver-inspired tee, but I also wanted to make one for his big brother Camden.  I thought and thought of different designs that would fit him until it finally hit me.  "Smooth," because that's exactly what this kid is.

Here he is:

BACKGROUND INFO: Camden is officially the smoothest 4-year-old I have ever encountered.  For example, my sister and I are in the airport with our 2 boys each.  They are all riding in strollers.  A friendly flight attendant walks by and says, "Looks like a fun ride."  Cam gets a big 'ol grin on his face and says, "I wish you were coming!"  The kid even declares his love for all his teachers at church.  He kisses the hand of the music director and tells her he loves her.  AND.....what is the outcome of it all?  They LOVE him.  People stop my sister all the time just to tell her what a special boy he is.  Yes, he is special, but he's also very, very smooth.

Anyhow, back to the shirt.  Still a little trigger shy with the freezer paper stenciling?  Click HERE to watch the video tutorial.

If you'd like to make a "smooth" tee, just save the following picture to your computer and print it off whatever size you want it.  (I just insert it as a picture to Microsoft Word and play with the size until I'm happy.)

I did some simple floss stitching on the sleeves.  I wish I had a picture of him in the shirt, but he's been a little sick.  Can't wait to see it on the little guy.

That's all for today.  If you need a laugh today, I got a real kick out of THIS POST.  See you tomorrow!  Thanks!
