I like classic rock, and I like puns. It was only a matter of time when, while listening to Foreigner's "Juke Box Hero," it occurred to me that a play on that title would make the perfect kids' t-shirt! This was before I even started trying to get pregnant, so it's extra satisfying to see it come to life.
Miles doesn't actually drink juice boxes yet (my wife Kristie drained these!) – nor does he fit into a 2T shirt. But once he does, this tee will be ready. The template's down below if you want to make one too!
You will need:
- A toddler- or kid-size tee
- "Juice Box Hero" template
- Freezer paper [affiliate link]
- X-acto knife [affiliate link]
- Cutting mat
- Fabric paint
- Foam craft bush
Carefully cut out the letters using the X-acto knife. Position the stencil on the t-shirt, and iron into place.
(I wanted the block letter look, so I discarded the inside pieces of the U, B, O, and R, but you can hold onto them if you want to and carefully position them where they belong inside the letters, and iron them in place as well.)
Dab fabric paint evenly onto the stencil. Let dry, then peel away to reveal the design!
