DIY Fan Shirt

We are big NASCAR Race Fans!  If you are a race fan then you know today is the big finale race at Homestead!  Our favorite driver, Tony Stewart aka Smoke, is second in the standings with an awesome chance of winning the title.  He has won two championships driving the Home Depot #20 but since he is now the co-owner and driver of the Office Depot #14 it would be so cool to see him take the championship title this year.  Either way we are his fans!

Having declared our loyalty to Smoke, it is only fitting that Kirby should have his very own team 14 shirt.


This was super easy to make and pretty inexpensive.  I would have preferred a short sleeve shirt but finding a red one in winter is difficult.  Note to self: find one this spring.  I picked up this Garanimals red turtleneck shirt (size 18 months) at Wal-Mart for less than $4.00 in the children's section.  I picked up some iron-on number and letter kits in the craft section.


First, pre-wash the shirt so any shrinkage that may occur happens BEFORE applying the lettering.


Choose your numbers/letters, remove and place on back of shirt, and using hot iron follow the directions.


The sleeves were too long so I just cut them and hem-stitched.  (For girls - add a ruffle across the bottom of the shirt for a skirt)


Kirby is now ready to cheer for Smoke!  Mmmm, he looks like a good luck charm to me!

Have a favorite driver?  Maybe a college football team?  Even your local high school teams could use a furry fan!  Let your little fluffy ones show their team spirit!  We would love to see pictures!

UPDATE:  Kirby wearing his #14 Shirt must have helped because the 2011 NASCAR SPRINT CUP CHAMPION is TONY STEWART!!!!!   Um, Smoke, can Kirby be your official team mascot?
