My son, Bubba (you guys know that is not his real name, right?) is amazing….I love him to pieces. Okay…I’m going to go off on a tangent real quick. I decided to call him Bubba on the blog here, because that is what my Grandpa used to call him. (He passed away this past year, but I can still hear him saying, “Bubba, come give me a kiss.” You couldn’t leave Grandpa’s house without giving him a kiss.) Okay, back to Bubba. He has an amazing personality. His personality exudes “I don’t care what you think about me….I know I am awesome.” But that “I’m not going to follow the crowd” attitude is combined with a gentle, compassionate soul. He is pretty awesome (but I am his mom…I’m sure all moms think that about their kids, at least I hope they do). Well one of his favorite things to do is paddle board, so I thought I would make him a paddle board t shirt. I sewed up this gray v neck t shirt (from a vintage Simplicity 9996 pattern), had my husband draw me a silhouette of Bubba paddle boarding, cut away the design from freezer paper and painted away. Can you guys see the freezer paper stencil on this shirt? Yeah, I can’t either, but I know it is there, and more importantly Bubba knows it is there. Other than my lack of forethought on the fact that black fabric paint won’t show on dark gray fabric, I love this shirt. And Bubba loves that his shirt holds a secret design. When the light hits it right, you can see the design, maybe! And Bubba, being his strong little personality, won’t care if you can see it or not; He knows it is a paddle boarding shirt and that is all that matters!
