DIY Hot Wheels T-Shirts

When our kids have birthday parties, I always try to give a single larger party favor, rather than a lot of little trinkets. It’s so gratifying to see the boys’ friends continue to use their Ninjago T-shirts and Superhero capes.

This year, J is having a Hot Wheels party, and I thought it would be fun to make race car T-shirts for the kids to wear as they zoomed around our house.

I can almost applique T-shirts in my sleep since I started with this onesie baby shower a couple of years ago and then went appli-crazy. You can look back at those past posts for more detailed instructions and ideas.

For this year’s shirts, I found a few Hot Wheels-themed fabrics and paired the car prints with racing stripes. Here are some different patterns you could check out:

There were lots of ways to mix and match colors and patterns to create all these unique shirts!

I don’t like to make things too stereotypically “boy” or “girl,” but I also hoped I could make something the girls might continue to use, so I hope these strike the right balance:
