adding appliques to boys clothes

Lately I have been obsessed with adding to the boys clothing....
I found these super cute sweat pants at Old Navy and really didn't find any tops that I loved. So while at Target I found two thermals and bougth them...with an idea in mind. I found a skull and cross bones that I liked printed it off and layed ontop of my gray felt and wonder under.  First I ironed it on and then used a zig zag stitch into place...I love the way it turned son really loved it dispite the look on his face.
Isn't he so cute!!!!  He decided to smile after all
My almost 4 year old is loving that his pants had a "make over". I took a pair of Childrens Place pants and appliqued a spider onto his pants.
This is the other shirt I did for my older son.  I mocked it off of his sweat pants and just used a font that I have on my computer to cut out the top part and drew out a skate board.
Here it is up close
This pair of pants actually used to be his older brothers and I just cut out some cool logos off my three years olds shirt and just ironed on using Wonder Under and sewed right into place....
This is how the pants look before
I cut out skull and cross bones....put over the wool felt and Wonder Under cut those out and then I ironed on so I wouldn't have to worry about the pins getting ran over or constantly breaking needles.  I used a zig zag stitch and stiched into place....I made it so that the stitch was closer together.
 The gray shirt is a passed down from his older brother.  Ryker my 4 year old is obsessed with Captain America and so we decided it was time to recyle the shirt.  I have lots of felt on hand so this project didn't cost a thing and it is his most favorite shirt ever!!!! 
Last of all here is my handsome making sure the fire truck "RED" is looking at the camera.  This is his cutar pants as he calls them rather than guitar.  I had some fleece on hand for this one and used that he so so so loves it because the guitar is soft and fuzzy.  I stitched some lines in the base of the can't see them in the picture...he has a guitar shirt to go with his pants too.  It's safe to say I have been having lots of fun working on their clothes...for now.  My boys especially the "little one" thinks he is such a rockstar now!  It gives me such a smile and satisfaction seeing how excited they get...especially when you take older clothes and make them new again.
