Easter ‘make’ a day – Day Four: the red car and the blue car had a race

As a student of the eighties I had a large number of headline t-shirts with slogans like ‘Cats against Vivisection’ and ‘Mad Car Disease’. My opinions matched those slogans and, although my opinions have mostly stood the test of time, the t-shirts haven’t.

The one on the right of this picture I wore all the time – it was comfy (and huge)!  I took it out of my drawer today after a prolonged absence in my life and noticed the paint stains and the holes and thought, ‘I know, I’ll take that fab Milky Way ad car off the front and add it to a t-shirt I will wear’.

The t-shirt I had in mind for transformation was a black marl number from Primark that had also been a wardrobe staple for some time. (I don’t shop very often) but when I looked closely, it had torn just above the elbow of the left sleeve. Undeterred I just cut both sleeves off at that point. The fabric will roll, giving me a cap sleeve of sorts.

I cut out the car and ironed it onto some Bondaweb before ironing it onto the front of the shirt. As you may have read I made a t-shirt in a similar way for my daughter’s birthday and with that experience in mind I sewed all round the motif with running stitch in a complimentary colour. Now I have a t-shirt I will love to wear – there will be a brag label going on at the hem in the very near future!
