Big Bro/Lil Bro Shirts

I love these shirts from Lil Opihiz, but I don't have $32 to drop on kids clothes (make that, any clothes).
I do, however, have lots of basic clothes, time, and craftiness. When you mix them all together - this is what you get.

Big and Little Brother matching shirts! So corny! So cute!

I used a new (to me) kind of interfacing on this project. It was like a double sided tape that you could move the applique around until you set it with an iron. I don't even think it was necessary to zig zag the edges, but I'm not that risky with my business.

Mr A pointed out that the two islands are aligned differently. It's slight, but I wish he hadn't said anything because there's nothing I can do about it now and it's just bugging me.
Also, the "Big" and "Lil" are done in silver, which doesn't show very well on this fabric. I might end up outlining it - but in what color? Red? Would that look too...red?

Ikaika even learned a new word from this whole experience: "Big Island"!
