Independence Day Shirt


We are getting ready for the 4th over here. There is something special about this holiday. I love the pure Amereicana of it all. I love the small town celebrations and the fireworks. I love the picnic and bbq's. I love my Little Men's excitement. I love the unity of waving flags and dressing in red, white, and blue.

This year I either made, altered, or repurposed shirts for each one of my Little Men. 

This shirt is Oldest's. This is the shirt I "made". Obviously I didn't  sew it. I just took a plain tee and then embellished it. I love the red silhouette of the United States (sorry Hawaii and Alaska...I know you are part of the U.S...I just couldn't get those states to fit on right). I cut out the the number 1776 from scraps of a white t-shirt and then sewed them on. Perfect!


The two older boys kind of fought over who got it. In the end, Oldest won. He was pretty stoked about it.


The other two L.M. got repurposed shirts...They still like them, and they still looked quite handsome. I will share what I did with these two shirts on Friday.

We are ready for some 4th fun. Fireworks here we come!
