Like last year, I’m making our baseball fan’s t-shirts. Lucas’s team is called The Red Whipper Dogs. After some talking with the team members, and asking them how they came up with the name, I did some research online.
As you can imagine nothing came up under Whipper Dog. I guess I knew that, but you never know what you can find online. Right? Like now. Maybe you do search now Whipper Dog my post could come up. Kinda’ fun I guess.
Anyways. I did some research online and I found a few designs and clip arts for Whipper-Dog-could-look-like. Lucas decided on the perfect one.
And then I set myself to make our freezer paper t-shirts.
I made the drawing on the freezer paper. I cut it out with an X-Acto knife carefully, to make a stencil.
I stick it to the t-shirt with a hot iron, and then I paint what was cut out.
First I tried it as a whole piece cut out, making the Whipper Dog white on the red t-shirt. Which then made me think, that I was actually making a ‘white’ Whipper Dog, which is not the case.
So then after Mark asked me to make a border, just like last year’s, I gave it a try. I wasn’t sure about it. It didn’t look right when I set it on the shirt. But did it anyways. And you know what? It looks really good!
Don’t you think?
So on Lucas’s first game we all wore it.
So now, I have a few more to make as the other Whipper Parents want to have one too. I love it! I’ll take a picture later in the season with everyone wearing it! And now, let me know if you ever see a real Red Whipper Dog. I would love a photo of it!
