Pigeon T-Shirt, Inspired by Mo Willems

The other day, I was out with my son while he was wearing this t-shirt and someone actually stopped me and said, "I love the Pigeon shirt! Where did you get it?"
I was so tickled to say, "I made it!"
And that's when I realized I hadn't posted anything on this shirt before.
You do know the book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, right? It's by Mo Willems and it's a Caldecott Honor Book (in case you'd like to check it out). My son was really into Mo Willems's books last summer so I made this shirt with him.
We got the shirt from a craft store, along with some fabric markers. Then I practiced the drawings once or twice on a piece of paper before drawing on the shirt.

He really likes wearing it and I'm glad it has fit for a second summer in a row.
Fabric markers are just so much fun! Maybe we'll tackle another t-shirt in the coming months. Hmmm...wonder what'll go on it... :)
