Superman T-Shirt

By ari - April 29, 2012

There never was any doubt my child was going to love all things nerdy, not with a mum like me! He is very much into superheroes, his favourite being Superman because Superman is big and strong {just like Monster when he eats all his dinner!}

His Superman hoodie I made him a little while ago is too small, so I told him I would make him a new t-shirt {I also ended up making a new Superman hoodie too}. He loves his new shirt so much he wore it for two days and slept in it for two nights before my best friend Sophie and I had to wrestle it off him so we could put a clean shirt on!

I salvaged every skerrick of scrap fabric I had to make this shirt! The blue is from a shirt I bought my dad a while ago from the op shop and he said I could use it for the Monster, the red is from another tee and the yellow is from my stash. Using my Superman logo pattern I cut out the S from red fabric and the shield from yellow, stitching it all together! It's tedious but I'm a pro at it now :P

I'm trying to make the perfect t-shirt pattern for Monster, but I always have problems with the neck. It's either too big or too small. One day I'll get there!

It has a cape attached to the back which he loves! The cape is sewn into the shoulder seams and the back neckband.

Here's a video Tim took of when I gave the shirt to Monster
