Autograph Shirt

Boogs has one day left of Kindergarten. I decided to make an autograph shirt for his friends to sign. I was going to go to Hobby Lobby and buy a white t-shirt, but then I remembered a t-shirt in his closet that he never wears. This shirt started out white, got stained, was then tie-dyed, and now I have freezer paper stenciled on it. It was perfect for the kiddos to write all over with permanent marker.

I could not find my craft exacto knife so I had to settle for a box cutter. Whew, that was a lot of work with a box cutter. 

Green paint to match the green tie-dye.

Tada! Finished and ready to wear to school.

Before school - Boogs thought it was a pretty cool idea to have his friends write on him.

After school - Boogs had fun getting signed. During bath time, he thought it was pretty funny that he had permanent marker dots on his skin. The markers went through in a couple of places. Boogs told me that he put the end of his shirt up on a desk so his friend could draw a heart near the bottom. 
I still can't believe that tomorrow afternoon I will be bringing home a 1st grader. This year (actually the past 6 years) has gone by way too quickly. I am really going to enjoy having my boy home for the summer.


  1. What a wonderful idea!! Something to treasure when he is older. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!
