Introducing Mushroom Boy Ika

BabyEbi drew this cute character the other day on his drawing board. When I asked him what it was he told me it was "Mushroom Boy Ika" So I took a photo as usual...

I popped it into Photoshop, added a layer, traced the outline, hid the initial layer then used the paint bucket and BabyEbi's instruction on colour to produce this...

And then I spotted a plain T-shirt and had a thought.....dangerous at the best of times!
I enlarged the original image so it would just fit on a piece of A4 which looked like it would be a good size, then I printed it off and cut out the main pieces. Then I got my material scrap bag out and got BabyEbi to pick out some scraps, I traced the pieces onto the various scraps and cut them out along with some of the bond-a-web stuff (is that what it is called?) and ironed the pieces onto the T-shirt, sewed round the edges. Finished it off with some fabric pen to draw on the details, looks pretty damn good, even if I do say so myself!

BabyEbi loves it too, I think, he thinks he is a bit of a rock star... p-o-s-e....
