Freebie Friday Bat Man shirt Pattern
In truth I wanted to do spiderman. The buddy has been finding spiders for me to kill, and then cleaning up the remains with tissue paper and then calling himself "spider man." This needed a spider killer shirt. But the buddy said, no, I want BATMAN! But I didn't want Batman. I wanted a spiderman shirt. Well, sometimes I have to remind myself that with unimportant things it doesn't matter what I want. (As a side note, I'm not super big on the super hero craze he's got going. I'm doing my best to discourage the four year old. FOUR. He's got years to enjoy them. But isn't he a little young? I think so.) Anyway, my evil plan was to put the bat in between the words BAT and MAN it wouldn't be so overly batman. right? Did it work?
Here's the simple tutorial:
fabric-black, purple (whatever colors you want)
heat 'n bond (found in the sewing notions section I think)
Print out the "Bat Man Shirt" pattern. Cut out around each of the words and the bat.
Use your cut out paper patterns as a guide. Cut out three same sized peices of heat 'n bond.
Cut out the bat and words-on the lines. I cut through the B and the A's so I could cut out the inside part as shown.
And use as a stencil of sorts. Draw around the words on the heat 'n bond. Make sure you turn the letters around backwards so that they will be the right way when you flip the fabric over.
Cut out the fabric backed with heat 'n bond and peel off the paper.
Position words on your shirt, and iron on
Show it off!! enjoy!
