Have you ever tried looking for a girly Elmo shirt? It’s not that easy to find, though I did find one at old navy 2 weeks after we had the party (of course). But then again, it was 15 bucks and I wouldn’t have spent that much any way on a 2 years old’s birthday shirt when I could make one for 2 dollars. Here is the Elmo lover in her $2 birthday attire.
I didn’t think about a tutorial at the time, but it is pretty easy to figure out. First, I found a coloring page print out of Elmo’s face. I bought the shirt at Hobby Lobby for 2 dollars. Next, I went to my felt and wonder-under stash to put it together. I simply cut the Elmo face in the felt fabric and applied wonder-under to the back of the fabric. After fusing the Elmo face onto the shirt, I stitched around the Elmo. It was that easy!
To top her off, I threw together a quick Elmo party hat.
She couldn’t wait to get that off. This girl hates anything on her head.
My sister made the Elmo cake for her. I don’t do cakes. Fabric is much friendlier to work with.
Then she was showered with Elmo gifts.
