Not Too Crabby

Hi there! I'm Mr. Crab. I'm hiding a Polo logo. Yum, they sure are yummy when I eat them up!

So, yeah, this shirt had a Polo logo on it, and I wasn't thrilled with it, but I kept it around for one of those days when I wasn't feeling like putting a lot of effort into an outfit. But then I saw these shirts at Boden and I knew what had to be done.

Mr. Crab was just cut out of cotton and Heat 'n Bonded onto the shirt. I was a little worried that the Polo logo would make a bump under the crab, but it didn't at all. Then I stitched around the edges with a straight stitch, no zig zagging for me! I wasn't sure if the eyeballs were "too much" but my husband lobbied for them, so there they are. And now my boring old stripey shirt has some personality!

I'll let my husband know he did the right thing in pushing for the eyeballs. Thanks!
