don't let the pigeon DIY shirt

Pin It
Bear loves any book by mo willems. between the knuffle bunny trilogy, the elephant and piggie books, and the don't let the pigeon... series, naming a favorite is a tough call.

one thing is constant though, if you look, every mo willems book has the pigeon somewhere in it.  sometimes it's in the illustrations, others the back of the get the idea.  all that being said, Bear wanted a piGEoN sHiRT

i like to make shirts for him because they aren't only inexpensive, but they are personalized.  i've made him a birthday shirt each year and a working man shirt (like the utility workers he loves so much!)  the pigeon shirt took about an hour (with breaks in between coats of paint).  i used tulip soft fabric paint and a paintbrush.  Bear was quite excited with the finished product.
what children's book characters do your kiddos love?
how do you bring them out of the books?

We love that little pigeon in our house too. What a great idea! The boys love superheros and Star Wars and are always begging for those themed shirts but we have a bazillion favorite books, I think they'd love a character shirt just as much.

Turned out amazing! Looks very much like an expensive shirt from a boutique somewhere! Austin is all into branded sportswear now and shirts that have skulls and stuff on them. Makes me sad that he's grown so quickly from the sweet stuff.

That is fantastic! You are so creative. I love the Pigeon books & my kids do too (even though they're a little old for them now.)
