Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationTwo days in a row without a skirt?  Well, sorry, but I got on a roll making Field Trip Raglan T-shirts for my boys!  And embellishing them was too fun.  I simply had to!  Let’s start with the bigger version on Thomas.Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationOnce again, I used the Field Trip Raglan T-shirt pattern from Oliver+S.  Before sewing, I added the Cessna Skyhawk airplane. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationHere’s the process is you want to make your own:

Step 1:  Print off photo/ line drawing of airplane.

Step 2:  Place carbon paper under drawing, dark side down, on top of shirt front.

Step 3:  Use pencil to trace over lines of airplane.

Step 4:  Remove drawing and carbon paper.  Trace over remaining lines with black fabric marker.

Step 5:  I added the words “Skyhawk” in red because Thomas’ favorite airplane is a certain red and white Cessna Skyhawk.Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationThen I sewed the rest of the shirt together following the Oliver+S pattern instructions.  I color-blocked this t-shirt to have a black back as well as sleeves and neckband.Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationThomas is thrilled to have this t-shirt added to yesterday’s Inkodye cowboy t-shirt.  I don’t sew as often for my boys as I do for my girls, so to get 2 shirts in one week was a big thing!Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationFor David’s shirt, I cut out the shirt front of the Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan t-shirt.  Before sewing it together, I added the footprint truck drawing. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationHere’s how so you can do it too:

Step 1:  Put a lot of fabric paint on a tray.  Dip in child’s foot.  Place foot on shirt front, straight down with no wiggling.  Wash foot!

Step 2:  I used fabric paint and freehanded the rest of the truck using fabric paint.  I referenced the photo from my Kids Clothes Week modes of transportation inspiration post.

Step 3:  Allow shirt front to dry for 24 hours before constructing the rest of the shirt.Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationPretty easy, and SUCH fun results.  The black knit fabric in both these shirts came from Girl Charlee, and the white is the same as yesterday, a white cotton knit from JoAnn Fabrics.Footprint truck shirt made by Skirt Fixation

David honestly couldn’t decide which shirt to wear today and kept switching between this shirt and the sun print one I made him yesterday.Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationThomas is very happy to have another shirt that is custom made for his frame. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationPrepare yourself for a photo overload of David in his shirt because he was having a blast being in front of the camera. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationHere is the story of David’s cute dimple.  When David was 2, he was running with a pencil and fell down.  The eraser end jabbed his cheek!  (Lucky it wasn’t the other end, I know!) Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationFor about a month he had a bruise and a muscle knot in that spot.  Then the bruise and the knot went away, but the dimple stayed. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationEveryone loves that dimple, and I always tell them it’s self-inflicted!  A happy ending to a scary story…Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationOne reason he was standing so still for the photos was I told him to hold still and listen for the click of the camera so he would know when I was finished taking a photo. Hand painted Oliver+S Field Trip Raglan T-shirts made by Skirt FixationHe listened so intently and his eyes lit up every time he heard a click!  It was just perfect for snapping adorable photo after adorable photo!

  1. Those are both awesome embellishments. I didn’t realize they still make carbon paper! I’m old enough to have actually used it in a typewriter. This is a way more fun way.

  2. […] often. I made a fire truck version of the Field Trip Raglan T-shirt which you can see on our blog here. Alright, without further ado, let’s gather […]

  3. Ok I’m here because of the dimple story. My daughter fell on Halloween and basically the same story as David’s. But it’s only been a couple of months. How long has David had his dimple? Is it still there? The Dr. Told me it “should smooth out overtime” possibly more than a year, and of course it could possibly stay forever.
    Her dimple is in less of a natural spot as David’s so I’m hoping hers goes away.
    Just wanting to see how his injury has changed over time, if at all.
    Her’s is still in the knot stage, but the dimple is so prominent.
