A Simple Grandparent Gift

I made this hand print t-shirt for my father-in-law's birthday. I wanted to do something with the girls' hand prints but didn't want to use paint. I've been using Wonder Under A LOT these days, I figured I could use it for this too!


Plain white t-shirt, washed
Wonder Under
Fabric of choice
Straight pins

1) Trace your kiddo's hands onto paper and cut out to use as a pattern
2) Pin your hand print pattern onto the fabric and cut out
3) Following the directions of the Wonder Under, iron the hand prints onto the t-shirt
4/5) Using the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine, stitch around each hand print

The t-shirt can be machine washed, just be sure it is turned inside out.

I've been absent lately...

Life has been a little overwhelming the last few weeks and the time and desire to blog hasn't been there. I would so appreciate prayers for our family, prayers for God's peace to reign!
