Dad is RAD

We think DAD is RAD, so we used a few Dollar items to make a shirt for Willie, fitting for the Preschool Dad's Day Party.
Here's what we started with: Hanes shirt (Dollar Tree - worth the bin digging required); Necktie (Dollar Tree); Iron-on letters set ($1 from Big Lots, but get two for all the D's required!).

I used the back side of the tie, for the skinny tie look.  Place it on the shirt for letter placement, then iron away!

Stitch on the tie...I used a messy stitch.  Add tie top (at slant), and stitch.  I also added on a couple of embelishments to the sleeves with tie scraps.  And, here you have it!

(Hurry up, Mom!)
