This is a shirt I just finished for my son, he loves Lightning McQueen! There are a ton of tutorials out there on how to do reverse applique, here is one close to what I did: http://lilblueboo.blogspot.com/2009/04/reverse-applique.html I really liked how this turned out and I think my son is going to love it. He saw it halfway done and wanted to wear it right away, I told him to wait b/c I needed to add some more "Kachow" to it. :) I think he's going to love the lightning bolts on the sleeves. I added the # on back for fun, it doesn't look as good as I hoped but it'll do. I'm making elastic waist shorts to match.
The "Kachow!" lightning bolt on the sleeve is his favorite part!
