Mechanic Race Track Shirt

I have been working like crazy trying to get this  finished.


the Mechanic Race Track Shirt
 Isn't he cute? He is such a ham!
I was wanting to make him a shirt that not only he could wear but also play with. Something that would occupy his time while we shop and he is "so bored". His favorite thing to do is play with his cars, so of course it hit a race track! I didn't just want a plain t-shirt so I found a pattern that I could make to look like a mechanics shirt. Love the pattern by the way.



The race track I made from an old sweater, then I stitched on the yellow lines with embroidery thread. The grass is just green felt, then the stitched red and white border. I made the flags from an old t-shirt and felt for the poles.


Race car parking pockets to carry his favorite cars, with an extra pocket on top.




Racing a car on the track!



He loves his new shirt, it makes him feel so cool! It even has is name embroidered on like a real mechanic.


Peace out everyone!

And while he is telling you all peace notice the red of the sleeve? Yes this shirt is fully lined so it is red inside.

I hope you like the Mechanic Race Track Shirt, it was a lot of work and it's definitely not perfect but I love how it turned out and so does Dayton.
