The idea for this shirt came to me when I was struggling to think of something cute, but not an animal. Animals are my daughter's fav so those are easy to think of....cute dog, cat, bunny, horse/unicorn, etc etc (though I am still on the search for the perfect guinea pig silhouette). And I didn't want a summer theme like ice cream, popsicles, etc because these are back to school tees that will wear into the fall. Then I remembered fruit! And what better for fall than apples or pears. Apples are kinda overdone. So we have the pear. ;)
To make the pear more interesting I decided to chop it up and make it scrappy in non-pear like colors.
I used the image of the pear in these coloring pages. I printed it off and then I believe I had to enlarge it on my copier. Then I drew lines across it where I wanted it chopped up. You can reverse this image by tracing on the back, but since this particular picture would look fine either way, I think I just used the front.
I traced all my individual pieces on my wonder-under lite. I did make the stem shorter than the original picture.
Ironed onto all my fabric pieces. Then cut out.
Placed carefully on my tee, then ironed down. Then I stitched a straight stitch along the edge of every piece.
