Best Granddad in the World T-Shirt

My parents will be out of town on Father's Day so we celebrated Father's Day with my Dad today so I'm able to share part of his gift since he has already received it. 

I made my Mom a t-shirt for Mother's Day using one of my favorite crafting techniques, freezer paper stenciling, so it seemed only fitting to make my Dad a shirt as well. I freezer paper stenciled "Best Granddad in the World" on a plain white t-shirt. I cut the words out of freezer paper with my Silhouette machine. I substituted a globe for the "O" in world. I actually used an Earth Day globe from the Silhouette store because I wanted something a smidge abstract and not so technical as the other globes they had. (For a freezer paper stenciling tutorial, check out this post.)

It turned out pretty cute, don't ya think? My Dad doesn't really wear t-shirts a whole lot but he does wear them when he goes for morning/evening walks so I think this will be nice for him to wear then!
