Show the {Love} for 100 Days T Shirt

There is going to be some serious partying in kindergarten this Monday.

Not only is Monday Valentine's Day. A celebration in and of itself. A celebration that by itself could make a whole class of 5 and 6 year olds's giddy and make the teacher want to call in sick ready to share the love.

It's also our school's 100th day.

This may be a first. I'm not sure if they've ever landed on the same day before. I hope they don't mind sharing.

So, an extra special occasion deserves a special t-shirt.

I just thought of this yesterday. Wish I had thought of it a bit sooner but it didn't take long to make. Perfect for me, quick, easy and inexpensive.

I had the fabric in my stash and used a t-shirt my daughter already had. It looks red in the pictures but it's really hot pink.

I freehanded the hearts and the one and sewed them on the shirt. I only used a straight stitch because I figured it's only going to be worn once.

After I showed my 5 year old the shirt and she tried it on and jumped around saying she was wearing it to school on Monday, I heard her say to her sister "why is there a 1 and two hearts?". My 7 year old very patiently explained that the two hearts were the zeros of the 100. My 5 year old then said "oh yeah, they do kind of look like zeros".

Super cute! We celebrate 100 days of school too. It's so cool that you came up with a way to celebrate both. Precious! I use the straight stitch a lot just because I like the sort of shabby look when it frays just slightly. So cute!

Cute!! Love that you made the hearts into zeros...even if not everyone *got* it. ;) Preschool doesn't do 100 days. Maybe in kindergarten?

Thanks for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party! :)
