When my daughter asked daddy what he wanted for Father’s Day he said a massage. Okay, he didn’t really. But if she would have asked him on a day when his back was aching perhaps that’d be what he’d say. Ha!
For his present we decided to make a back massage shirt. But not just any back massage shirt, a Hot Wheels Massage Shirt!
We got the template off of a wonderful blog called The Blue Basket. She provided me with the perfect template and instructions and so away we went!
The first step was buying a plain white t-shirt and printing the template. We placed the template inside of the shirt with newspaper underneath, just in case the fabric markers leaked through.
Kora then followed the pattern with a black fabric marker. This required a little bit of help because the shirt would move so I held it tight while she traced the lines.
After all of the black outlines were done Kora chose which colors she wanted to use for all the buildings.
We bought some Hot Wheels Monster Jam trucks. They have really nice big wheels so would feel perfect on dad’s back!
And there you have it! A nice homemade Hot Wheels Massage Shirt for dad! He gets to lay down and relax while the girls play cars on his back. Sometimes they get a little crazy and crash the cars, but otherwise it’s been wonderful!
