This year was my husbands FIRST Father's Day, so I wanted to do something special and VERY personal to him. I decided to make him a sleep shirt with our daughters hand and foot prints on them. I know that this has been done time and time again, but it's still super cute and the memories from the day will last a lifetime!
I wanted to make sure the shirt had a lot of personal touches, so I added the following items:
- I put his name on the front (well, his name according to Madison, which at the time was Dada)
- Of course the shirt had to include the year and since my husband played baseball for many many years, I thought it would be cute to put the year on the back, like a jersey.
- On each of the sleeves it said "I <3 U"
- On the back it said <3 Madison <3
Here are all the items I bought. I did make one mistake... I meant to buy black letters for the year, not white, so it would stand out better against the white shirt. Oops - still turned out great! :)
After I ironed everything on, it was time for the paint!
I had to make sure it was colorful! :)
Next, time for the baby - first we did the hands, in multiple colors
I rinsed her hands in between color changes
Next was the feet!
The finished product! FRONT
The finished product! BACK
This was just too cute of a picture not to include!
Off to the bathtub!!

Hope you had a great Father's Day too!
