This is such an easy gift to make, and kids will get a kick out of seeing their drawings appliquéd onto clothes. These were illustrations made by my 8-year-old niece, translated to fabric appliqués and sewed onto some shirts. I took scanned images of the children’s drawings and sized them to fit the tank tops.
