Turtle Power: Ninja Turtles Tee

Remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I do. More accurately, I remember the dangerously violent moves they taught my brother to use on me.

The resurrection of the Turtles means a whole new generation of brothers can torment their siblings. Case in point: my nephew. I guess you can say I condone the violence, because I made him this Ninja Turtles tee shirt for his 5th birthday.



My nephew's favorite turtle changes every day, so the hardest part was guessing who he'd like during his birthday party. I went with Leonardo -- mostly because I had some extra blue jersey in my stash.

Want to make your own? It's so simple and takes less than a half-hour. I found the idea for the Turtle tee over on Sewing Mama RaeAnna. I just sewed some jersey fabric onto a store-bought tee shirt. I didn't finish any edges, and the eyes are made from an old sheet. Tie the jersey on the side, then trim the ends so they're not getting tangled up in your lil turtle's legs. Ta da! Instant turtle power.
